the working poor dont have hot air luxury to refuse a built home #guyana

Guyanese am told are against duplexes, townhouses or apartments styled living cause they want more land space
but there are plenty vacant space all over Guyana I don’t see people rushing to occupy
Guyanese are rushing to other people countries
especally the white man country and living in buildings and structures with barely enough space to breathe
the luxury of cheap talk is amazing grace
some of the same voices condemning govt housing are cussing to get a subsidised houselot
be the junior capitalist that you are and buy a lot on the open market
if you don’t want a duplex, use your money to buy your own land and build your dream castle
but thousands of our fellow citizens assaulted daily by the violence of poverty dont have hot air luxury to refuse a built home
you generally wont find those voices on facebook, they are busy eeking out an existence

The right to housing is recognised in a number of international human rights instruments. Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights recognises the right to housing as part of the right to an adequate standard of living.[1] It states that:

Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.

The right to adequate housing was a key issue at the 1996 Habitat meeting in Istanbul and a main theme in the Istanbul Agreement and Habitat Agenda. Paragraph 61 of the agenda identifies the steps required by governments to “promote, protect and ensure the full and progressive realisation of the right to adequate housing”. The 2001 Habitat meeting, known as Istanbul +5, reaffirmed the 1996 Istanbul Agreement and Habitat Agenda and established the UN Human Settlement Programme to promote the right to housing in cooperation with the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights. Known as UN–HABITAT, the programme is the most important international forum for the right to housing. It is tasked with promoting housing rights through awareness campaigns, and to develop benchmarks and monitoring systems.[1]
