Zero Evictions Campaign

How participate in October 2018’s World Zero Evictions Days

We suggest that you converge your initiatives throughout the month of October, building the common agenda of the R-Existing inhabitants.

Throughout the month of October, popular initiatives are planned in many countries in Asia, Africa, Europe, North America, Latin America and the Caribbean, which will culminate in the International Meeting for Egalitarian Cities (Buenos Aires, October 28-31 2018), parallel to the meeting of local authorities Urban 20. On that occasion, there will be a session to monitor the implementation of the Recommendations of the International Tribunal on Evictions on the case of evictions caused by the tourist industry of the popular district of La Boca. At the end, on the World Day for the Right to the City, there will be a debate between social organizations and local authorities that have signed the Municipal Declaration for the Right to Housing and the City.

We propose:

  • To denounce the threats of forced evictions, demolitions, land grabbing, violence against activists: ite.coordinator@habitants.org  
  • To block evictions
  • “Requisition” long term empty housing
  • To fight against austerity plans based on neoliberal policies to overcome the crisis
  • To fight privatization and the deregulation of the housing and land sector
  • To monitor the implementation of the Recommendations of the International Tribunal on Evictions
  • and more, even small initiatives (press release, tweets, banner ...)!

We propose that local authorities and supporting governments should coordinate action with movements in order to:

  • Declare their territory “eviction-free zones”
  • Approve coordinated action plans for “zero evictions and the right to housing, land and the city”
  • Set up Popular Funds for Land and Housing
  • and more ...

These proposals should form part of local, national and regional platforms and be launched through rallies, sit-ins, press conferences, delegations, forums, broadcasts and whatever other means may serve to give a voice to those whose Rights to Housing, Land and the City have been violated.

Then, we will decide the next steps together.

If you have not already done so, we ask you to no longer hesitate in:

  • Publishing your World Zero Eviction Days initiatives on the FB page "October 2018: World Zero Evictions Days for the Right to Housing, the City and the Territory" and on the website section
  • Registering if not yet registered Register now  
  • Filling in "Datacard of follow up  "
  • Informing other organizations, movements and networks
  • Getting sympathetic local authorities and governments to support us

We will publish the information on www.habitants.org , a website visited by 100,000 people per month, and in the Newsletter, sent to another 130,000 entities in more than 100 countries.

On the www.habitants.org  website, it’s easier!

Do not hesitate to contact Nicola nicolas@habitants.org  in case of any technical issues!
