The NAKED hedonistic flat viewing rally
The action committee nudist offensive Aktionskomitee nudistische Offensive (AKNO), the alliance for urban mobile acoustic irradiation Bündnis für urbane Mobilbeschallung (BUMS) and the "hedonistic flat viewing rally" (Sektion "Hedonistische Wohnungsbesuchtigungs-Rally") section have completed another flat viewing rally on Sunday, August 8:
“Although both apartments passed our party test, we are pissed off that such apartments cost some 10 Euros rent per square meter excluding utilities and heating cost nowadays. Trying to find someone stupid enough to pay that price borders illicit profiteering (Mietwucher). The law forbids overpriced offers, if demand exceeds supply in the housing market and apartment-seekers have no choice, but to accept these offers. If a shortage is established, demanding a rent exceeding the reference value suggested in the “Mietspiegel” (an official document issued by the state detailing average housing prices) constitutes an administrative offense, and prices exceeding this value by 50% or more are treated as a criminal offense. In the latter case, signed lease agreements can be changed to reflect an average rental price.
Against profiteering in the housing market – for fair living conditions!
