       Appeal for European protest in Marseille 2008

The following appeal was proposed during the Assembly of urban social 
movements at the European Social Forum, which was held on September 20th 
in Malm? (Sweden).

It will discuss the mobilisation at the time of the summit of European 
housing ministers which will also be held in Marseille on the 22rd-24th 
of November.

       Open letter to EU housing ministers

Honourable Ministers,Aware of the upcoming housing and urban development 
ministers' informal meeting scheduled to take place in Marseille in 
November, we would like to propose this as an occasion for dialogue with 
civil society actors from urban social movements.

With this letter, we address some of our concerns and propositions.

       Orientate policies on the Right to Housing

All the states of the European Union have ratified the international 
treaties and conventions that recognize and protect housing rights.
Nevertheless, despite this legal recognition by the EU member stares, 
often reinforced by national constitutions and legislation, despite the 
States' additional commitment to Millennium Objectives No. 7-11, which 
provide for the improvement in housing conditions for 100 million badly 
housed people by 2020, and the Lisbon Strategy for social inclusion at a 
European level, housing rights still get violated more and more.

* >> * Orientate policies on the Right to Housing 

The International Alliance of Inhabitants is a global network of 
associations and social movements of inhabitants, cooperatives, 
communities, tenants, house owners, homeless, slum dwellers, indigenous 
populations and people from working class neighbourhoods.

The objective is the construction of another possible world starting 
from the achievement of the housing and city rights.
