Zero Evictions Campaign

The first step of joint agenda established established by the Urban Social Forum is on October, the World Zero Evictions Days – for the Right to Housing, in order to unify the Global Campaign for the right to housing and to land.

The central focus is the struggle against expulsions, evictions, the foreclosures, the land grabbing and the persecution of activists: these matters involve all the inhabitants, both urban and rural.

The targets are the neoliberal policies: the roots of the urban and global crisis, corruption and real estate and land speculation, they exclude more than a billion people from a home and throw tens of millions more out on the street every year.

This way we support the USF Call to defend the common goods for the future of cities and territories.
