Buenos Aires, Camp for an indeterminate time before the IVC to demand housing rights

The IAI Zero Evictions Antenna South is accompanying the camp carrying out in the very centre of Buenos Aires from May 5 by various organizations which are asking for public policies to defend the right to dignified housing. It is a tense situation because of the housing crisis and the failure to provide evidenced by the UN Special Rapporteur on Housing Right during her mission the last few weeks, and that will be submitted to the ICESCR Committee (Geneva, Nov 27-Dec.3 ) whose task isto monitor the implementation of legal obligations assumed by Argentina with the ratification of the ICESCR.

The tents raised in the small plaza in front of IVC, at Carlos Pellegrini andPerón, transformed the landscape of the centre. There families connected with the Movement for Public Housing, are demanding a “definitive solution” to the lack of housing, which affects around 500 thousand persons, according to a report of the Buenos Aires Legislature. With respect to this picture, they asked that there be an increase on the budget for public housing and that the execution be under the “full” controll of inhabitants and their organizations. Furthermore, they are requesting the “immediate halt” of evictions, which now “leaves families abandoned in the streets”, they claimed. Those camping out, belonging to MTD Aníbal Verón (CTA), MTL Rebelde and the Cooperativa 20 de Noviembre, among others, installed themselves from the 5th  of May alongside the 9th  of July Avenue.

“There is no policy for housing. One of the main problems is the access to credit” complained one of the members of the camp. For this reason, one of the demands is the creation of easy credit, as in the law 341, and the provision of individual credit, of 142 thousand pesos. Following this line, families are asking that “social rent” be put into practice, that is to say, that the sum not exceed 20 percent of the family income, with state guarantees. In addition, “we need to simplify the procedure to permit access to the programs”, suggested another of those camping out. The flags sheltered the inhabitants from the wind and the passing cars, while children played behind the awnings. With constant meetings and an open radio, the organizations sought to make visible their claims in the real centre of Buenos Aires: a tax on vacant housing, the adoption of a law for emergency housing, the urbanization of the shanty towns-without “political clientelism” they declared-and trial and punishment for those responsible for the deaths of Indoamerican Parc.
