Survival Without Rent

Originally published in 1986, this was revised and expanded in 1989. It's a booklet intended to help people take back the homes that have been taken away from them by government and business. Dedicated to Eleanor Bumpurs and to the East Fifth Street Squat. It's a step by step guide to setting up a squat from a perspective of living in New York City. It's broken down into chapters including how to form a group, finding a building, getting in, emergency repairs, lights, heat, and fire safety, makeshift toilets, and legal hassles. It includes some fantastic illustrations by Seth Tobocman.
