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)

Appel mondial: Sécuriser les droits fonciers et protéger la planète

Près de 2,5 milliards de personnes dépendent de terres autochtones et communautaires représentant plus de la moitié des terres de la planète ; elles n'en détiennent pourtant légalement qu'un cinquième. Les cinq milliards d'hectares restants ne sont pas protégés et sont donc exposés à l'accaparement des terres par des entités plus puissantes, telles que les États et les grandes entreprises.

Museo de los desplazados: el cine de ficción

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:

What you need to know about the global refugee crisis

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.

Vers Habitat III: ne pas déranger l'opérateur?

La Plateforme globale pour le Droit à la Ville, constituée par les plus importants réseaux internationaux impliqués dans le thème, le 26/05/15 a envoyé une lettre pour proposer la collaboration de la societé civile à la préparation du Sommet des Nations Unies Habitat III (Quito, octobre 2016).Malheuresement, aucune réponse est arrivée a cette date, ajoutant cette cloture aux autres que l'ONU Habitat est en train de disseminer. Pas de surprise, car  la proposition est fondée sur les droits humains, une approche qui derangerait l'ONU-Habitat, bien ancré sur les principes néoliberaux.Dans l'attente que quelqu'un enfin décide de répondre, vaut mieux s'impliquer décidemment dans la construction du Forum Social Urbain Mondial Alternatif à Habitat III.
