For more than a year young Parisians have been hitting the city´s real estate scene in a humorous way. Armed with costumes and fake bank notes they undermine apartment viewings and even sometimes create spontaneous flash mobs. They know exactly how to attract media attention. They call themselves ‘Jeudi Noir’ (‘Black Thursday’). On the one hand, this name is reminiscent of the stock market crash in 1929 and on the other hand, it has its origins in a Parisian real estate paper which is published weekly, every Thursday. The activists are protesting against rack-renting and demand a legislative solution which prohibits landlords being able to increase rents. Jeudi Noir occupy prominent places in Paris to attract politicians’ attention. They will carry on with theses actions at least for the next few years, until enough public housing becomes available.
