Squatting consists of occupying an abandoned or unoccupied area of land and/or a building. In [[Europe]], it is common for buildings to be squatted to be used as social centres. Cafés, bars, libraries, [[free shops]], with many squats also holding parties and concerts. Squats can be really great places for nomads.

In some [[Europe]]an countries the law could be on your side when squatting.
 
 
 
=== The [[Netherlands]] ===
 
 
 
In the Netherlands, squatting is illegal since October 2010. However, when you do manage to squat a property and have a bed and kitchen table in before the [[police]] shows up, you cannot be evicted right away. This is because the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) rules the right on a place to live higher than the right of ownership. That in return means the owner has to go through a court trial to evict you, taking a minimum of 6 weeks. After that you will be faced with a ~250 euro fine though.
