Global Studies Program and Club Host: “Housing Is a Human Right”, Oct. 14 @ 12:15 pm, Rm 431

9 October 2015

Please join the Global Studies program and club in welcoming a presentation on “Housing is a human right” on Wednesday, October 14 at 12:15 PM in room 431, 4th floor at BCC. All are welcome.

 

Housing is a Human Right! The dignified fight for homes in Mexico City and beyond with Enrique Reynoso of the Organización Popular Francisco Villa de Izquierda Independiente (OPFVII).

 

Enrique Reynoso has spent more than 25 years organizing for housing rights and autonomous communities in Mexico City as a lead organizer and representative of the mass movement Organización Popular Francisco Villa de Izquierda Independiente* (OPFVII, aka Los Panchos). Emerging from the government’s inadequate response to the 1985 Mexico City earthquake, the Panchos have organized tens of thousands of people around access to dignified housing. But they don’t play the party politics game to achieve their demands – they demand their rights and build it from the ground up. Enrique is an incredible community organizer with a wealth of experience and his talk will have important lessons for anyone interested in community organizing and housing rights.

 

*Formerly known as Frente Popular Francisco Villa Independiente-Unidad Nacional de Organizaciones Populares de Izquierda Independiente (FPVI-UNOPII)

By publishing The Pentagon Papers in 1971, Ellsberg revealed the lies the U.S. government had told to justify the war against Vietnam. Ellsberg’s revelations played an important role in helping to end that war.

 

In December 2006 Ellsberg was awarded the 2006 Right Livelihood Award “for putting peace and truth first, at considerable personal risk, and dedicating his life to inspiring others to follow his example.”

 

Since the end of the Vietnam War, Ellsberg has been a lecturer, writer and activist on the dangers of the nuclear era, wrongful U.S. interventions and the urgent need for patriotic whistleblowing.
