Help our p.a.l.m.i.e.r. solidarity house to survive.

It grows in the desert, with little water and gives sweet and powerful fruits

Palmier is the tree of life and resistance.

Like the struggles all over the world
for justice and freedom.

What is p.a.l.m.i.e.r? A 7-flat house in the center of Athens rented last summer in order to serve as a collective and solidarity housing project. 40 refugees of all ages and of 10 different nationalities reside in this house.

All of them used to live in refugee squats that no longer exist

as a result of the repressive policies of the new Greek government.

Having an urgent need for a housing alternative, locals and refugees active in the solidarity movement, attempt to create more safe and permanent infrastructures by renting a solidarity house. The idea behind it is to create a self-organized housing project, building upon the experiences of the last years and keeping up the red thread that links the different struggles.

Solidarity Will Win

In P.a.l.m.i.e.r. we want to create a solidarity community, a community of mutual support and shared responsibility. We will try to imply the principle “from each according to his/her ability, to each according to his/her needs.” This means that the residents who have an income are contributing by paying a proportion of the expemses according to their abilities, whilst those who lack any resources do not.
At the same time local and international solidarians will contribute the remaining amount. In this way people who lack the means of monetary contribution can still have a safe residence, as well as the time to regain power and autonomy in their lives. And the supporters will also be part of palmier community, not just as charitable people, but as comrades participating according to their abilities in a more just, re-distribution system.
