Housing is an essential human right that is often seen by the government as just another commodity. Fortunately, this issue has mobilized many struggles around the world that are fighting for justice and equality on the land issue and beyond. The intent of this workshop is to link international movements for land and housing with domestic efforts within the United States. Also, we hope to explore different models for “movement support.” This panel will feature brief presentations and break out sessions to discuss areas such as 1) direct action in the US 2) legal support and 3) international solidarity work regarding housing and land rights.
Featured panelists: Wendy Pekeur and Sarah Claasen, President and Secretary General of Sikhula Sonke (South Africa), Max Rameau, Take Back the Land (Miami), Meetali Jain (American University) and we are still attempting to identify someone from the MST in Brazil who will be visiting the United States in June.
