La Prensa , May 25

IN A COUNTRY where the legal security of citizens is disrespected and in which they are subject to the arbitrariness of certain authorities and to the vagaries of the real estate industry, it became necessary for civil society to organize to defend their interests.

From its birth the Citizen Urban Network has advanced 42 administrative and judicial proceedings seeking to end the defenselessness of the 35 communities that are part of the organization.

Unfortunately, government after government, has demonstrated the complicity and negligence of   municipal and environmental authorities, and especially the Ministry of Housing and Land Management.

We have a situation where neighbors must be protected against some unscrupulous investors, using their political influence and economic power, who have made changes to zoning. and  received expeditious authorizations that explains much of the urban chaos that in the capital.

Thanks to the, Citizen Urban Network, awakening society has a valuable tool in the fight for  rights in land use planning.
