The Lovely Bones (Several locations)
Director: Peter Jackson
With: Saoirse Ronan, Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz, Stanley Tucci, Susan Sarandon, Rose McIver, Carolyn Dando, Nikki SooHoo, Michael Imperioli

It may be better not to have read the novel by Alice Sebold.  Books create powerful personal images, that film seldom lives up to.  I did not read the book, and I was most impressed with this movie.
Susie (Ronan) lives with her father (Wahlberg), mother (Weisz) and kid sister (McIver) in 1973 suburbia.  She is a lively and sweet girl who is victimized by a murdering pedophile.  This is no spoiler, as I think we all know this.

Squatting Ban in the Netherlands

program date: 
Wed, 01/06/2010

For the last three years a ban on squatting has been in preparation in Dutch politics. A new act that is to ban squatting in the Netherlands passed through parliament on October 15th, 2009. Despite strong critique from the High Court, the union of city councils and even the Amsterdam police force, the christian/rightwing majority in The Hague is pushing this law through.

Having suffered from an immense housing shortage ever since the sixties, squatting has a long history in the Netherlands and has always been a legal means for thousands of people to acquire a roof over their heads.
