NACLA Report on the Americas
Edited by #UnequalCities Network Steering Committee member Keisha-Khan Y. Perry
Excerpt: This issue of the NACLA Report explores the current housing crisis in Latin America and the Caribbean as a reflection of a global phenomenon of devastation in cities and the mass negation of the basic human right to life and dignified living. It also highlights the political urgency of collectively addressing police violence alongside issues of public health, education, immigration, housing, land, and urban infrastructure. The poor Black women who courageously reject the police’s version of events in neighborhoods like Gamboa de Baixo encourage us to see and hear what the marginalized, dispossessed, stateless, and houseless are telling us.
