Vienna: Housing is a Human Right

Vienna: Housing is a Human Right
by the German DGB Union, 3/21/19

http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2019/04/437370.shtml

Housing as a human right is subverted by the right of speculation. The Vienna Housing Fund buys up potential development land and prevents speculation. Rents in Vienna are half the rents in Munich.

Housing is a creative challenge since we are not born with built-in housing like clams. The state cannot steal away from its responsibility to guarantee life, liberty, and happiness.
