Around a hundred of activists that defends the access to housing and are against evictions protest against property speculation.

Dozens burst into the fairgrounds, chanting slogans and preventing the opening ceremony from taking place before being removed by police. Others gathered outside the building, where they lobbed paint at some of the arriving attendees.
