Call to action for Housing and Land Rights Day 2008!


To all housing and land rights defenders,

This is a call to action to carry out the annual global campaign for housing and land rights under the World Social Forum.

This campaign called “Act together housing for all” will be launched in October 2008 and be completed in January 2009 with the World Social Forum’s activities in Belem, Brazil.

To this effect exists on World Social Forum’s web site a discussion and reflection space on World Social Forum’s process, and also building convergences on housing thematic topics.

As defined in 2007:

We continue our struggle against:

— Evictions and any violation of housing and land rights
— Financial speculation and corruption
— Negative effects of privatization of land, housing, water and utilities.

We continue to struggle for:

— The inclusive city
