OAKLAND, Calif. - A United Nations expert on housing explicitly singled out San Francisco and Oakland as the only two U.S. cities that are part of a "global scandal," describing homeless encampments there as "cruel and inhumane."
The U.N. Special Rapporteur on Adequate Housing, Canadian attorney Lelani Farha, presented her 23-page report on Oct. 18 in New York at the U.N. General Assembly after touring the world and visiting the Bay Area in January.
She also visited Berkeley and Los Angeles, but did not mention those cities in her report. On Tuesday, Bay Area housing activists held a rally at Oakland City Hall to discuss the findings.
Personal responsibility would go long way for these homeless folks. Not stealing shopping carts and packing out their trash to a trash can would go a long way in their favor. As would not hoarding crap and not destroying other people’s property.
