Zero Evictions Campaign

International solidarity to achieve dignity and security in housing

At this very moment, a billion people all over the world are either threatened with homelessness or living in bad housing conditions, due to large-scale investments of financial and real estate capital, social, economic and racial discrimination, wars and natural disasters. Instead of diminishing by 100 million by 2020 as laid down by Objective No. 7 of the Millennium Development Goals, this figure is destined to rise by another 700 million by 2020.

The International Tribunal on Evictions is an opinion tribunal established by civil society organisations for the World Zero Evictions Days – for the Right to Habitat to practically and interactively discuss the question of forced evictions around the world. The Tribunal relies on their expertise and on the appointment of a competent and recognized Jury, as well as on the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) and other instruments of international law in order to pass judgement on real cases of forced evictions that constitute human rights violations.

We ask your help: click here to e-mail to the Mayor of Açailândia, to the Government and the General Attorney of Justice of Maranhão, northeastern Brazil, to say no more pollution killing the 1,100 residents of Piquiá de Baixo, no more excuses to delay their resettlement!

To the Government of Cameroon:

We, the signatories of this petition emphatically demand:

Appeal to International Solidarity Action

We, inhabitants’ associations, international networks, voluntary groups, NGOs, public agencies, citizens of the world, express our indignation at and denounce Israel’s continual policies of eviction and demolition carried out against the Palestinian people, both Palestinians ’48 (citizens of Israel) and Palestinians ’67 (in the Occupied Palestinian Territories). These demolitions and evictions clearly violate international law.

Appeal to International Solidarity Action

To break the silence on the fate of millions of people and put pressure on international institutions to play the role they should, the Zero Evictions Nigeria Campaign addresses an appeal not only to the Nigerian authorities, but also to UN-Habitat, the European Union, the Africa Union, the G8, the IMF and the WB.
