StealThisPoster: Artivism & the Struggle of Lucha Y Siesta

This short film prèmiere by the StealThisPoster collective ( introduces the practice of subvertising and focuses on the experience of “Lucha y Siesta” the squatted and historical women’s house in Rome, in the Quadraro neighbourhood, planned to be put on auction by the city council of Rome on April 7 this year. Since many years LYS offers a voluntary help-desk and shelters for women victims of gender-based violence, to supply the lack of institutional solutions to this problem. Under the threat of an upcoming eviction, Lucha y Siesta formed a neighbourhood committee to buy the building, but the threat is still on and the fight is ongoing.
