Removing this section, as tagged, since it reads as trivia. If individual squatters are noteworthy for their squatting, we should be mention them in context in the article, or just simply categorize them under Category:Squatters. (not watching, please {{ping}}) czar 16:12, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

well i don't disagree with the action but you could have bothered to add the squatters with their own wikipedia pages to the new category otherwise other people's work gets trashed Mujinga (talk) 02:48, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

I'm about halfway through adding the squatters category to pages where squatter are mentoned, a time consuming process which was only necessitated by the rmoval of this section after a template was added THREE days before the deletion by an unregistered user. So actually I do disagree with the way the action was carried out. Nevertheless i can see the use of a category instead of a list, but the way this was done stinks.Particularly since i was adding referenced people just one month before.Mujinga (talk) 11:22, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

Is there anywhere on Wikipedia where political squatting is further explored[edit]

I've been finding a lot of great sources on pre-figuring squats, refugee/migrant solidarity, theoretical analyses of squatting as a political act, and more and can't seem to find a clear home for this information. I am considering building out Refugee crisis#Political Responses but it really seems like that information belongs somewhere attached to squatting. Thoughts?

sounds interesting but also quite vague, maybe give some specific examples? maybe it's good to add info to particular projects? cheers! Mujinga (talk) 18:56, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
