May, 2010
From GritTV.org: Should housing rights be considered civil and human rights? Even though critics claim that housing shortages are crosses to bear, one can?t solve foreclosures without first investigating problems behind public housing and homelessness. Protests and community empowerment actions such as ?live-ins? akin to the ?sit-ins? of the Civil Rights illustrate the growing need of Housing as not a government controlled entity, but an essential human right. Max Rameau, author of Take Back the Land and Vince Warren of the Center for Constitutional Rights join us in the studio to discuss the current actions working to secure housing as a human right.
