Progress in cases and other processes

By Maria Silvia Emanuelli | Coordinator

En los últimos meses, los casos judiciales que acompañamos han tenido algunos avances. En relación con el caso de desalojo de una mujer adulta mayor cuya hija perdió su trabajo durante la pandemia por COVID-19 y se vio imposibilitada a seguir pagando el alquiler después de 40 años de haberlo hecho puntualmente, logramos que el amparo fuera atraído por la Suprema Corte de Justicia de la Nación. En relación con el juicio civil a su favor, el procedimiento está en fase de reposición y probablemente se obtendrá una sentencia en los próximos 6 meses. 

De igual forma, desarrollamos los argumentos relacionados con el derecho a la vivienda adecuada en el marco de un amparo indirecto que se presentó contra una sentencia que ordena la liquidación de la cooperativa de vivienda más antigua de México que este año celebra 50 años desde su conformación por parte de trabajadores de una mina que están asentados en la zona más exclusiva de la ciudad y que desde hace años sufren la embestida del capital inmobiliario. Desde sus inicios, muchas de las personas que hoy integran HIC, estuvieron respaldando el desarrollo de esa cooperativa que se ha convertido en un ejemplo para toda la región.

Finalmente, a partir de enero y en conjunto con la Universidad Iberoamericana de la Ciudad de México, se abrió la primera Clínica Jurídica sobre Derecho a la Vivienda del país “María Luisa Marín”, que toma su nombre de una activista fundamental en el movimiento inquilinario del puerto de Veracruz de hace 100 años. La clínica ha estado atendiendo hasta la actualidad cuatro casos de violaciones de derecho a una vivienda adecuada y a la brevedad se dotará de un plan de trabajo para el próximo semestre.

There has been some progress in recent months in the court cases that we support. In the eviction case of an elderly woman whose daughter lost her job during the COVID-19 pandemic and was unable to continue to pay her rent after 40 years of consistent on-time payment, we were able to have the case appealed by the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation. Regarding the civil lawsuit in her favor, the proceeding is in the reinstatement phase and we expect a ruling in the next 6 months.

In the same vein, we developed the necessary arguments related to the right to adequate housing in the context of an indirect amparo filed against a ruling ordering the disintegration of the oldest housing cooperative in Mexico, which this year celebrates 50 years since its creation by workers of the mining industry who are settled in the most exclusive area of the city, they have been suffering a relentless onslaught by the real-estate market for years. From the very beginning many people currently associated with HIC have been supporting the development of this cooperative, which has become an example for the entire region.

Finally, in collaboration with the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City, the country's first Housing Rights Legal Clinic "María Luisa Marín" was inaugurated in January, named after a key activist in the tenants rights movement in the port of Veracruz 100 years ago. The clinic has been dealing to date with four cases of violations of the right to adequate housing and will soon have a work plan for the next semester.
