Housing and land rights violations are experienced in communities at the local level on every continent, necessitating constant vigilance and preparedness to mobilize in response locally. However, coming from all corners of the world, we must also make greater efforts to unite our forces in solidarity, to build partnerships and alliances among ourselves, and speak with one voice globally.
The global campaign seeks to denounce all the perverse effects of the neoliberal policies that lie at the roots of the global crisis, corruption, as well as real estate and land speculation.
Besides mobilizing as part of this Global Campaign 2011 for the Right to Habitat between 15 September and 31 October 2011, you can also contribute to the construction of a more unified global movement for land and housing rights by taking the following steps:
1) Let others around the world know about your activities by putting them on our Events Map at http://worldhabitatdays.org/map-of-events-mapa-de-eventos-mappemonde-des-activites/
2) Communicate and share ideas or proposals with others about land and housing rights through the website at http://XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
3) Join the collective efforts to combat forced evictions, land grabbing and persecution of activist by posting information about communities facing violations of the right to habitat on the Map of Cases at http://worldhabitatdays.org/cases-casos-cas/
