Our demand is for a public consultation to be undertaken on implementation of the projects. We aim to uncover the official privatizing policies in relation to housing production, and direct attention to the experiences of social organizations in this ield. We also demand access to state resources for housing production. We will debate the issue of the right to the city and to housing int eh city of Xalapa, as part of reflections on democratic management of the city, in particular for the projects: Xalapa sanitary landfill: Xalapa Freeway, and Urban Zoning Program for outlying urban border of Xalapa. The local and federal governments are attempting to impose these initiatives without considering social, political, and technical opinions in order to undertake the projects within a democratic perspective
