DRAWS NATIONWIDE PARTICIPATION
TU hosts conference on the tenants' rights movement

f

By BOB SCHREINER
The Ann Arbor Tenants Union
(AATU) was host two weeks ago
to the first annual International
Conference on "Students and
the Tenants' Rights Movement."
The conference was co-spon-
sored by the AATU and the Nat-
ional T e n a n t s Organization
(NTO). The AATU is seeking
affiliation with the NTO.
The tenants issue brought
over 200 people together from
as far away as California, Texas,"
Colorado and Massachusetts,
and as close as Chicago and
Detroit.
The majority of those who
attended the conference repre-
sented student tenant groups
throughout the United States
and Canada. But there were
also several independent inner-
city unions present, as well as
the executive staff of the Na-
tional Tenants Organization
which claims 140 member groups
in 40 cities around the country.
Participants held workshops
on various topics. A low cost
housing workshop featured three
radical architects who discussed
the physical implications of
housing.
Stu Katz, AATU organizer,
said the purpose of the work-
shops was to "cover every con-
ceivable aspect of housing."
Anthony R. Henry, executive
director of NTO said he believed
THANK YOU

Business Manager; Borb Schulz,
Personnel Director; Mrs. Mary
Rafferty, Mr. Karl Diener, The
Photo Staff, Bo-J, and the men
of the shop.
--Alison Lang

the housing problem is "abomin-
able and getting worse."
"To have sufficient power on
a local level will not get the job
done. The people realize that
what is needed at this point
is consolidated power," Henry
said.
A provocative speech by Har-
lem rent strike leader Jesse
Gray and the heated discussion
which followed, highlighted the
second day of the conference.
Workshops were held through-
out the afternoon covering
many facets of tenant unions.
After d i n n e r, participants
from Berkeley to Boston, gath-
ered in the Assembly Hall to
hear Gray, board chairman of
the National Tenant Organiza-
tion (NTO) who is challenging
Adam Clayton Powell for his
Harlem congressional seat.
Calling New York Mayor John
Lindsay a "liberal fraud" and
"the lord of slumlords," he
claimed-that New York and
most other cities in the U.S. are
controlled by landlords.
Recounting his own experi-
ences with the Harlem rent
s t r i k e movement. Gray said,
"Tenants are difficult to organ-
ize because they don't believe
the average person can solve
tleir problems. But organization
is the only answer to build the
kind of movement needed to
deal with the system."
He called rent strikes "just
the glamour of the struggle-
a struggle that requires a revolu-
tionary patience."
"The time is coming when the
tenants are going to tell the
landlords, 'no rent,' and there
will be no rent. When that hap-
pens evictions will be out of the
question and even the National
Guard won't make any differ-
ence. Eventually all housing
must be owned by the people."
