    Duration: 180 min
    Brief Description:

    122 women and 155 men from 48 countries registered to participate in the first Virtual World Assembly of Inhabitants in history on 31/07/2020, almost 4 hours of focused and passionate speeches, solidarity expressed with activists at risk of their health and life, the decision to proceed: all emphasize the importance of the event carried out as part of the global mobilization “Zero Evictions for Coronavirus” promoted by the International Alliance of Inhabitants.

    In Africa, Asia, Latin America, North America, and Europe, thousands of grassroots organizations are mobilized in health, food and social relief, in defense of the right to housing and land against evictions and its impacts. The inhabitants are not annihilated by the virus, not by the repressive policies of authoritarian regimes, and not by the ‘resilience’ policies of governments and institutions that would like to return to ‘normality’ of neoliberalism, which is the underlying cause of the crisis unveiled by the pandemic.
