The following is from the English language section of the Russian anarchist news site Avtonom. It's about the release of a new movie on the international phenomenon of "squatting". Squatting ties into the general anarchist attitude to "property rights" in that those who actually use property should be deemed to have its ownership. This applies not just to residences but also to workplaces. Here's the article.

Squatting. A film by Larisa Matteissen:
Release date 3rd of February 2009 1 hour 25 minutes
The movie follows anarchists and activists, who occupy different empty buildings and territories - from rooms, houses and industrial buildings to complete villages and ports. Dutch and Russian activists are telling about their experiences of squatting and reactions of authorities to self-organisation. Anti-squatters explain why they are in side of the state. You may freely distribute the film for non-commercial purposes.
