Housing is a Human Right

Modified Resolution agreed upon by the PMA in Portland:

Housing is a Human Right - Reclaim!

Because: Housing is a Human Right. 

Because: The city, state, and federal government are unable to address the housing crisis. 

Because: It is not the banks, but our community that can make the decision to not accept houseless people and people-less houses in our community. 

Enough is enough! This is a call to unite and organize in the defense of our community’s control of housing and land. 

1. Resolved: That the PMA recognize housing as a human right.

2. Resolved: That the PMA support community control over housing because the housing market, city, state, and federal government cannot fill the imperative to provide housing for all.

3. Resolved: That the PMA recognize direct action as a legitimate tactic for the maintenance of our community’s health, safety, and well being.

4. Resolved: That the PMA will commit to exploring how groups and constituencies can stand in solidarity with local movement and groups engaged in direct action to provide housing for all.

La vivienda es un Derecho Humano 
 
Porque: La vivienda es un Derecho Humano. 
 
Porque: El gobierno municipal, estatal y federal no puede hacer frente a la crisis de vivienda. 
 
Porque: No son los bancos, sino nuestra comunidad que pueda tomar la decisión de no permitir que hayan personas sin hogar y casas sin habitantes en nuestra comunidad. 
 
¡Ya Basta! Este es un llamado a unirse y organizarse en la defensa del control de nuestra comunidad de las viviendas y tierras. 
 
1. Se resuelve: Que el PMA reconoce la vivienda como un derecho humano. 
2. Se resuelve: Que el PMA apoya el control comunitario sobre la vivienda porque ni el mercado de la vivienda, ni los gobiernos de la ciudad, el estado y la nación no pueden cubrir la necesidad imperativa de una vivienda para todos. 
3. Se resuelve: Que el PMA reconoce la acción directa como una táctica legítima para el mantenimiento de la salud, la seguridad y el bienestar de nuestra comunidad. 
4. Se resuelve: Que el PMA movilizará para defender y apoyar a los movimientos locales y grupos involucrados en la acción directa para proporcionar vivienda a todos.
