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)

Global call: Securing land rights and safeguarding the earth

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.

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.

Verso Habitat III: non disturbare l'operatore?

Il 26/05/15 la Piattaforma Globale per il Diritto alla Città, costituita dalle più importanti reti internazionali coinvolte nel tema, ha inviato una lettera per proporre la collaborazione della società civile alla preparazione del Vertice delle Nazioni Unite Habitat III (Quito, ottobre 2016).Sfortunatamente, ad oggi, non è pervenuta alcuna risposta, aggiungendo un'ulteriore barriera a quelle che ONU Habitat sta già innalzando. Nulla di sorprendente visto che la proposta è fondata sui diritti umani, un approccio che potrebbe disturbare l'ONU Habitat, ben ancorato ai principi neoliberali.Nell'attesa che qualcuno decida infine di rispondere, vale la pena impegnarsi decisamente nella costruzione del Forum Sociale Urbano Mondiale Alternativo a 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.
