Between March and June 2018, 2,816 people accommodated in Paris saw their centers close without serious and comprehensive accommodation offers.
You announced at the end of July 2017 during a speech in Orléans that you no longer wanted, by the end of the year, "to have women and men in the streets, in the woods". It is necessary to note not only the failure of this promise and the worsening of the situation.
Worse, the announced budget cuts of 80 million euros in the emergency accommodation sector in 2018 threaten the quality of reception and support. At the same time, your government is not taking any action allowing the use of the many vacant spaces in Ile-de-France.
Faced with this observation, we, committed citizens, denounce the double discourse of your government whose orientations contradict the electoral promises of yesterday.
We ask for a rapid reaction allowing these thousands of people to have, still tomorrow, a roof and a possible social integration.
We are making three urgent requests to get off to a good start.
1/ Guarantee compliance with the law;
To comply with the code of social action and families, the public authorities are in “the obligation to offer accommodation solutions adapted to the situation of each one. » We ask that each person in a situation be offered decent accommodation solutions as soon as possible.
2 / Return to an acceptable level of funding for shelters;
The announcement of a budget cut of 80 million euros impacting all accommodation solutions for 2018 in Ile de France directly threatens reception conditions and respect for human dignity.
It reduces the chances of social and professional reintegration of the most vulnerable people. We ask to come back to this announcement and to revalue the financing of accommodation centers in their support missions towards social integration.
3/ Facilitate access to vacant spaces;
As a reminder, the Atelier Parisien d'Urbanisme inventoried in 2017, 205,000 unoccupied housing units in Paris - not counting offices, equipment, hospitals, barracks... For example, an experience like that of the "Grands Voisins" is proof, since 2015 , that the reception of vulnerable people in the city center generates new forms of solidarity. When this welcome is coupled with associative and artistic activities, it becomes the witness of a new attractiveness of the neighborhood and local economic development.
We ask that these innovative devices be heard by your government as a possible response to be duplicated in vacant spaces in order to reduce the current social emergency while allowing the existence of innovative urban experiences.
