      Strategies against displacement, forced evictions and sell-out in the context of the pandemic

      Despite Covid-19, evictions are being carried out, and many households are threatened with losing their flat or house. Capital market-oriented companies are going on a shopping tour, creating facts to use the crisis in their favour.

      Resistance is necessary, but how can it be organised? Which strategies are effective and helpful? Misereor organised an exchange on these questions between urban justice and housing rights initiatives from Berlin, India and South Africa on 28 October 2020.

      Study

      The Zug-based group Glencore-Xstrata is showing insufficient respect for the rights of the affected population with its plans to exploit one of the world’s biggest open-pit mines in the Philippines. Because the project threatens the livelihood of tens of thousands of people, tensions are rising and the first deaths have occurred. That is shown by a study commissioned by the Swiss Lenten Fund, MISEREOR and Bread for All.
