HIC Annual Report 2012




The 2012 HIC Annual Report sheds light on the renewed commitment of HIC members, friends, and offices in the promotion, defense and realization of the right of all people to live in a place in peace and with dignity. Through our actions, from local to international spheres, we face increasing challenges and we must face them through coordinated efforts while reviewing the relevance of our strategies and practices.

Struggles for the right to land, housing and the city continue to be at the heart of conflicts in all corners of the
world. Organizations and citizens around the world resist and mobilize themselves against commodification and
in defense of their territories, common goods, public spaces, and the right to participate in the decisions that affect
their surroundings.
