UN: let's study the problem

UN-Habitat head Anna Tibaijuka will journey to Harare soon to study the evictions in Zimbabwe, the Mail & Guardian reports (see also this dispatch from the UN's Integrated Regional Information Networks.)

UN Habitat is usually quite genteel and seldom offers firm criticism of any country's strategies towards squatters. So I'm not sure what this study can do. Still, if it can make a difference in people's lives, I'm all for it.

'Switch': Thanks for the compliment. Now, how about some more info about your situation. Are you secure in your home or is your squat under any threat?
