Jenny Stupka, Co-founder of the grassroots campaign ‘Expropriate Deutsche Wohnen and Co,’ announced that 56.4 percent of Berliners had voted in favour of the initiative during a Berlin press conference on Monday.
The campaign aims at nationalising thousands of housing properties owned by large profit-oriented real estate groups.
In other words, with Sunday’s referendum, Berliners expressed that they want the housing units to become common property.
”The referendum means that we Berliners want the transfer of our apartments into common property as well. We want that no more profits are made with our apartments and that we can determine ourselves about them,” said Jenny Stupka.
The Senate of Berlin is expected to initiate all measures necessary to transfer real estate into public ownership and draft a law for this purpose.

SOT, Jenny Stupka, Co-founder of ‘Expropriate Deutsche Wohnen and Co’ initiative (German): "Yesterday, we won the referendum of our initiative, in fact with 56.4 percent of ‘yes’ votes in total. We have achieved a majority in 10 of the 12 districts of Berlin.”

SOT, Jenny Stupka, Co-founder of ‘Expropriate Deutsche Wohnen and Co’ initiative (German): "And this is a success, which we even did not expect with our settled optimism over the past weeks and we are very happy about it."

SOT, Jenny Stupka, Co-founder of ‘Expropriate Deutsche Wohnen and Co’ initiative (German): ”We have made the democratic control as the aim for political decision making and this is such big step that international movements have looked onto the outcome of this referendum.”

SOT, Rouzbeh Taheri, Member of ‘Deutsche Wohnen & Co’ initiative (German): "We are welcome to make our draft available to the new government, however it might look like, and then they go through based on our draft and say which points might be problematic, what has to be changed, to be specify or has to be added to it."

SOT, Rouzbeh Taheri, Member of ‘Deutsche Wohnen & Co’ initiative (German): "We also said that we can talk about the how of socialisation, but not the if.”

SOT, Rouzbeh Taheri, Member of ‘Deutsche Wohnen & Co’ initiative (German): "In case that the politician will ignore our suggestion, we are always able to bring a law referendum on the way, but this is not our plan right now."

SOT, Rouzbeh Taheri, Member of ‘Deutsche Wohnen & Co’ initiative (German): "But one thing is for sure, the topic of rent and housing has won a higher meaning in the Berliner politics."
