Message of gratitude to HIC's members, friends and allies

Dear members, friends and allies,

The General Assembly of HIC, held in Quito on October 16, 2016 has been an unprecedented example of solidarity, democratic participation and mutual commitment to continue working together. More than 150 participants from 26 countries and 74 member organizations reviewed the work of the Coalition in the last three years and planned together the future work of HIC. The General Assembly closed remembering and honoring those who are no longer with us and played an important role in HIC's forty years of struggles and proposals in the field of rights related to Habitat. It was also the time to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Coalition with an eye to the future without forgetting the past experience.

It's now time to reflect on the role of HIC in the multiple fora organized in Quito, with a vision that goes beyond HIII, to continue building an alternative habitat with a integral vision based on human rights that fulfills the right of everyone to a secure place in which to live in peace and dignity .

Thank you very much from all HIC teams!
