Have you ever had the desire to just stay in one place for a while? Every slept on someone else’ couch for days on end? You know, staying someplace that technically doesn’t belong to you and is either abandoned or unsold… If you have, you’re a Squatter. If you’re not sure what “squatting” means, well here is a helpful little definition from Wikipedia:
Squatting consists of occupying an abandoned or unoccupied space or building, usually residential, that the squatter does not own, rent or otherwise have permission to use. According to author Robert Neuwirth, there are one billion squatters globally, that is, about one in every six people on the planet. Yet, according to Kesia Reeve, “squatting is largely absent from policy and academic debate and is rarely conceptualized, as a problem, as a symptom, or as a social or housing movement.”
Why I am posting this? Because this is going to be our next competition! In order to enter, all you have to do is squat in one of the unoccupied buildings in New Harlem (the latest city to open on ROCKtropia as of 6/30/10). From now until the next major update take screenshots of yourself squatting in one of these spaces. Out of all the screenshots you take you can only submit ONE to the official competition topic at NEVERDIE.com HERE.
You have until August 1st to submit your entry. On August 2nd 10 submissions will be selected by your ROCKtropian Crew and placed on NEVERDIE.com and will be opened up to be voted on by the ROCKtropia public. The public voting will last for One week.
Whoa! I almost forgot to mention what the prize for this will be…
500PED to the winner!
Get out there and find your squatter’s paradise!
