Announcement of online journal about squatting

Trespass is an occasionally published journal collecting together reflections on personal experience, essays, papers, conference proceedings, interviews, discussions, letters and other interventions from individual squatters and collectives who are using squatting to promote social change. Trespass is self-managed, open access, and unfunded. It is multidisciplinary and publishes work in different languages.

We aim to provide authors with the possibility to publish in their own language. We consider that linguistic diversity can foster a greater literary quality to the materials being published. Thus, the print version of Trespass will most often contain articles in several languages, but special editions adapted to certain language communities will also be compiled and shared physically at affordable prices.

We aim to publish submissions of peer-reviewed articles and working papers on research topics connected to squatting struggles worldwide. Reviewers for this kind of texts are selected for their knowledge of the subject matter, with a diversity of background preferred. Theory can be written in any kind of format, we encourage authors to develop a diversity of styles to reach readers. Find the submission guidelines here.

On the other hand, the website will be used to spread info about squatting struggles. Our blog and twitter account are open to all formats: communiques; pictures; manifestos; news updates; calls for solidarity; etc. The focus is on facilitating communication between squatters and activists worldwide, and to contribute to the networks that are aligned with squatters, to expand the visibility of their claims and actions.
