Message to Habitat III: it's a scandal the “New Urban Agenda” is ignoring the economic frames of the global housing crisis
Members of the “international working group for the promotion of market regulation and market alternatives at Habitat III” have sent a very critical message to the participants at third prepcom of Habitat III (Surabaya, 25-27 July 2016), pointing out that it is a really scandal that the draft of the “New Urban Agenda” still keeps totally silent about the development and crisis of globalized markets. To face evictions because the mortgage and housing crisis, the public and municipal debt and poverty as a consequence of structural adjustment programs, privatisation and austerity, it should be introduced the regulation of financial and property markets, especially the rent control, taxation of transactions and private insolvency.Those issue will instead be at the center of the People's Social Forum Resistance to Habitat III (Quito, 17-20 october 2016)
Up to 2.5 billion people depend on indigenous and community lands, which make up over 50 percent of the land on the planet; they legally own just one-fifth. The remaining five billion hectares remain unprotected and vulnerable to land grabs from more powerful entities like governments and corporations.
No âmbito do processo preparatório para Habitat III e para o Fórum Social Mundial Urbano (Quito, outubro de 2016) lançamos um veemente apelo pela inclusão do Direito à Cidade como pilar fundamental da Nova Agenda Urbana e pela responsabilidade de todos os atores por sua implementação.
Ficción Inmobiliaria recopila material formado por películas de ficción donde las problemáticas asociadas a la cuestión de la vivienda aparecen en la trama principal o cruzadas con ésta. La ficción rara vez trata sobre lugares; en la ficción importa la historia. Pero si atendemos a la localización, sin dejar de prestar atención a la trama, podremos acceder a parte del conocimiento fílmico almacenado en la imagen audiovisual. Analicemos ese residuo de conocimiento objetivo del contexto filmado:
We are witnessing the largest and most rapid escalation ever in the number of people being forced from their homes. In 2014, an average of 42,500 people were displaced every day. Millions of people are fleeing conflict in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Ukraine, as well as persecution in areas of Southeast Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, creating the highest level of displacement since World War II. The world desperately needs to come up with better responses to this global crisis. Here are some of the population movements that IRIN has covered in the last year alone:
A Plataforma Global pelo Direito à Cidade, constituída pelas redes internacionais mais importantes envolvidas nesse tema, enviou uma carta no dia 26/05/15 para propor a colaboração com a sociedade civil na preparação da Cúpula das Nações Unidas Habitat III (Quito, outubro de 2016).Infelizmente, até hoje nenhuma resposta chegou, juntando esse fechamento aos outros que a ONU-Habitat está disseminando. Nenhuma surpresa, pois a proposta baseia-se em direitos humanos – uma abordagem que incomodaria a ONU-Habitat, bem ancorada em os princípios neoliberais.Na expectativa de que alguém finalmente se decida a responder, é melhor envolver-se de maneira definitiva na construção do Fórum Social Urbano Mundial Alternativo à Habitat III.

They are “internally displaced persons,” or IDPs. By the end of 2014 there were 38 million of them, more than twice the number of refugees.
An estimated 3.4 million people have been physically or economically displaced in the past decade by projects funded by the World Bank. The bank has regularly failed to protect the poor and vulnerable people it claims to serve, a new 11-month ICIJ investigation has revealed.
