A leaflet announcing the Provos’ White Housing Plan, which addressed Amsterdam’s housing shortage due to rampant real estate speculation by advocating for squatting.

The Provos elaborated their political platform in a series of White Plans that addressed social problems with the goal of making Amsterdam a more livable city. Their White Housing Plan called for squatting in unoccupied properties as a solution for the housing crisis in Amsterdam. The doors of vacant houses would be painted white to indicate their availability.
