World Zero Evictions Days 2010
On the occasion of World Habitat Day 2010 celebrated by the UN-Habitat with the motto “Better City, Better Life”, the International Alliance of Inhabitants, the world-wide network for housing rights with no frontiers, has issued a critical communiqué launching the World Zero Evictions Days to support resistances and alternatives for participating cities, a concrete foundation for a new Urban Social Pact. At its heart: the demand for a world-wide moratorium to evictions; and funding for housing and habitat in a “New Green Deal” for at least a billion people. This funding would be based, among others, on the investment of an important part of developmental aid as well as on the annulment of external debt, transformed into a Popular Fund for land and housing.
The October mobilisation prepares the final stage of the unifying process to the World Assembly of Inhabitants (WSF Dakar 2011).
