Philippines, Demolitions and forced evictions in Laperal, Makati, appear to constitute breaches of international law

Informal settlers clash with police and demolition team who were taking part in relocation efforts for residents of Laperal compound in Makati City Metro (April 27 2011) The Centre on Housing Rights and Evictions (COHRE) strongly condemns the violence that marred recent attempts to demolish the homes of about 1,000 families situated within the Laperal Compound of Makati City, Manila, on 28th April, 2011. The demolitions were ordered by the Mayor of Makati after the Makati City Government classified the informal settlement a danger zone following a fire that occurred in the area 8 days previously. Residents who attempted to resist the demolitions were met with force. The practice of forced eviction constitutes a gross violation of human rights, in particular the right to adequate housing. COHRE is deeply concerned about reports that State officials and the police may be responsible for such serious human rights abuses.

Buenos Aires.Informe: Una sociedad excluyente y una ciudad desbordada.La Agenda Metropolitana y un debate impostergable

En la Buenos Aires Metropolitana (BAM), a partir del ultimo tercio del siglo XX, se está produciendo una de las peores situaciones socioterritoriales de su historia: 1) una mayor polarización en términos sociales (si bien en la última década crece el sistema productivo, no ha mejorado en igual medida en términos de distribución) y 2) una oferta de bienes y servicios urbanos fuertemente segmentada . Esto ha generado que a partir de la caída del modelo sustitutivo de exportaciones, a fines de los ´60, vienen creciendo ostensiblemente los niveles de la desigualdad en la ciudad de Buenos Aires, cabecera metropolitana (Abba, A. P., Furlong, L., Laborda, M. y Susini, S., 2011).

Direito à moradia na Argentina: violações apesar do compromisso do Estado

A Relatora Especial para o Direito à Moradia visitou oficialmente a Argentina entre os dias 13 e 21 de abril de 2011, y agradece ao governo, à equipe do País das Nações Unidas, à sociedade civil argentina e à Aliança Internacional de Habitantes por sua mobilização e participação na visita.
