Take Back the Land

Host Sue Supriano interviews Max Rameau about Take Back the Land, which he founded in 2006. The group initiated a bold campaign that sparked a national movement: they began taking over foreclosed and government-owned homes, and moving homeless families into them. They have successfully moved in over 20 families to date, and many have used the opportunity to save up money and get back on their feet.

Max is a Haitian-born Pan-African theorist and organizer. He moved to Miami, Florida in 1991 and began organizing around immigrant rights, especially for Haitian immigrants, criminal justice issues and police brutality.

In 2008, Max authored the book Take Back the Land, recounting the experiences and political theory behind the Umoja Village.
