Call: publically denounce violations of housing and land rights

The USF Organizing Committee invites all social groups and organizations that wish to speak out against a specific violation of housing or land rights, caused either by eviction or land-grabbing, to take part in the “Eviction and Land-grabbing Tribunal ”.

>>> To be sent before August 20 2012

Logistics:  The event will take place on 3rd  September from 6pm to 8pm on the Fiera d’Oltremare esplanade, headquarters of the UN-Habitat’s World Urban Forum. Raquel Rolnik, the United Nation’s Special Rapporteur on the Right to Adequate Housing, will also participate in this event. (For more information about her work, please visit: http://www.ohchr.org/EN/Issues/Housing/Pages/RaquelRolnik.aspx )

Goal:  To provide organizations and social groups - both those in attendance and those following from afar - a platform from which they can submit their complaints directly to the United Nations and to governments and businesses around the world responsible for evictions and land-grabs.

Development:  A demonstration (in the style of an American rally), at which participants march carrying banners that highlight that which they wish to denounce. Each poster will display the main elements specific to the case, as well as any photos that may be relevant (see s uggested form  below ). We recommend that the signs be written in English and Italian. The cases presented could be past examples (like those used in the 2011 Campaign for the Right to Habitat, which was supported by a number of different networks, including members of the “World Map of Urban Habitat”, organized by Habitat et Participation ) or could just as easily pertain to newer, more local issues.

Conditions for taking part:  Organizations that wish to take part in this event must send the participation form below, filled out in Italian and English, to info@forumsocialeurbanonapoli.org . before 20th August. The Organizing Committee will respond by email with instructions for preparing posters and with more specific information about the event (meeting place, coordination, etc.)
