First of all, congrats on a well phrased topic prompt, it makes all the difference.

Yes, squatting is not inherently anarchic. I’ve seen it done out of civic efforts of beautification of the neighborhood by engaged citizens, with approval of the local government. They appropriate these spaces as rightfully and lawfully belonging to them as part of their neighborhood and as citizens.

Also, what is squatting? Is staying overnight under a stoop squatting? Is living on a cabin on a land where it technically isn’t yours, but no one claims it or bothers you, squatting?
