Doel (Belgium)

Doel is a little town close to Antwerp. By 2020 the town will be erased due to the expansion of the Antwerp harbour. Most of the houses have been expropriated and many have been looted or trashed. In 2007 there were officially only 359 inhabitants left in the little town. Nowadays mostly asylum seekers and squatters occupy the abandoned houses. As we speak, the inhabitants of Doel are still strongly protesting against the expansion of the harbour, trying to save their town from disappearing.

    That’s been torn down allright… If you want to take some more shots, better hurry… Renting permits are due to end, only 12 owners are allowed to stay, renting is forbidden…

    The end is near…
