Statement by MieterInnenverein Witten (Witten Tenants Assoc.) on behalf of the “International Working Group for the Regulation of Real Estate Markets and Market Alternatives” to the Habitat III Plenary 20th Oct. 2016
Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur est la 3e région la plus peuplée de France. Au 1er janvier 2009, sa population s’élevait à 4 889 000 habitants.
Initiated by Hungarian homeless advocacy group The City is for All, local groups in 9 countries are organizing solidarity events to protest against the criminalization of homelessness in Hungary. The persecution of homeless people is in violation of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, the European Convention on Human Rights, and the UN International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
Groups in more than 8 cities plan to follow the call for parallel intrenational action against the criminalization of homeless in Hungary.
