Por una vivienda digna

One of the biggest problems for young people in Spain is the house's costing. It's almost impossible for a normal working person to afford its own house. And the prize keep on' going high and high... And this is a way to complain about it, in the Complutense Campus (you see Pharmacology School over there) they have set a camping.
Is that problem happening in your city?

El precio de las casas en Madrid es bastante desorbitado. Para la mayoría de los jóvenes con trabajo es prácticamente imposible comprarse su propia casa. Y los precios siguen subiendo y subiendo. Y esto que veis es una forma de protestar, montando un cámping en el campus de la Complutense (allí se ve la Facultad de Farmacia).
¿Teneis este problema en vuestra ciudad?

Housing is a huge problem in NYC too. Most young single people here share their apartments with one or two room mates.

Most of my friends who are married with kids live out in the suburbs like upstate NY, Long Island or New Jersey where real estate is cheaper. The commute to the city for work.

The average one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan costs about $1.3 million or $2500/month rent. In Queens and Brooklyn, you can get a one-bedroom apartment for $250,000 or $1,200/month rent.

You people should move to Brookville, Ohio. You can rent a 7-9 room home here for about $700.00 US Dollars a month. Or if you like it you can buy one for less than that. Brand new. Maybe you could do the college classes by Internet.

Interesting. I was also posting about the housing sector today. Ther's not much vocal protesting going on here. Unless you count the black market were people buy and sell apartments in ways which aren't supposed to exist.

I think Abraham has a good idea - take classes by internet. It is more and more popular to do this.

We still have affordable housing in Little Rock but one really must have a car to get from the affordable housing to the university (unless one takes classes on-line, of course).

Muy buena protesta con las tiendas de campaña en la Complutense. La verdad es que los que nos queremos ir de casa de nuestros padres tenemos un gran problema...
Gracias Dsole por el compromiso y la foto.
Saludos.

Por supuesto, la solucion son los roommates. Tres o cuatro personas compartiendo afinidades y a celebrar!

Its a great idea for a protest to make a statement - we have a huge homeless problem here and rising living expenses make things even more difficult for lower income people!

El problema es que los alquileres son tan caros como pagar un piso, en ese caso, la gente prefiere pagar algo que al final es suyo que no pagar para no tener nada, ese es el principal problema.

Ming, i see living in NY it's expensive indeed!

Ab, you have such a great idea, but oh I'd miss Madrid a lot...

Thank you for your comments here!
Gracias por vuestras opiniones! Esperemos que se dignen a solucionar este conflicto de una vez por todas y no con propuestas absurdas y poco funcionales como han hecho hasta ahora..

Good post!
in one of my earlier posts, someone from spain commented the housing is our town is considered cheap. obviously, coming from Asia, I see everything as unreasonably priced :D

House I'm afraid it's a worldwide problem in big cities. Here too it's expensive even if, probably, not like Madrid.

Housing in Toronto is very very expensive - there are many homeless people here.

He aqui que me han dado un buena idea para cuando viite Madrir, ir a un lugar de esos y mezclrme con losparroquianos y asi ahorrrme lo del hotel.

Fuera de broma, eso tambien ocurre en Mexico, D.F. las rentas estan mas altas que la Torre Mayor (el rascacielos mas lato de Mexico y dicen que de iberoamrica) y los creditos hipotecarios, uff, mejor ni pensarlo.

I was in Madrid a long, long, time ago (feel like I'm getting old...) and people were protesting something back then... I don't remember what it was, but they did the same thing--they set up tents all along the middle of the Castellana! The tents were there for several weeks. This picture reminds me of what I saw back then.

Fascinating........affordable housing for the young and service industry people is a big problem here too, D

Although it doesn't alwaysn garner results, this is a good kind of protest because it is so visual. I wouldn't count on any reductions tho, unfortuntely.
