BAT du Peuple

BAT du Peuple

Short url:

The BAT du Peuple, squat located at 1 rue de la Substantion in Montpellier, was initially a project of poorly housed people, precarious, working poor, students, many women, people struggling to survive, etc... who knew each other throughout the Yellow Vests movement. After occupying an abandoned building in September 2020, it has been worked on and made usable to host activities: meetings and assemblies about various struggles, actions of autonomy and food solidarity (people's kitchen, sharing skipped food), administrative support, well-being workshops but also a freeshop, and a free library.
All those ("organized" or not) who struggle, cultivate alternatives or weave popular solidarity are invited to appropriate this place. Together, let's build a place at the disposal of social movements, an inclusive place to serve and support emancipatory struggles, as well as the people and groups that lead them, let's organize on a large scale solidarity for more autonomy in terms of housing, food, well-being, with all the good wills. Whether we are offering a workshop or bringing a project to life, we want to build together a place that is open, inclusive, and organized without hierarchy.
