Officials from the Ministry of Security of the City of Buenos Aires confirmed that continue with operations to evict homeless people. They will not allow people to sleep on the street.

Security Minister Waldo Wolff assured: “Whoever does not accept that possibility cannot sleep on the street, they have to go somewhere else. Sleeping on the street is not a possibility.” “But if they don’t want to go, I have to take care of the neighbor,” he clarified.

“The City of Buenos Aires is the only one in Argentina that addresses social problems with social inclusion centers,” said the official and added: “In the last census we have more than 1,000 people living on the streets, and they are invited to go to a shelter. So it is not a choice to be on the street, in a city that gives them the possibility of helping and containing them. If not, we will not allow them to sleep on the street. First because it is wrong, and second because it is dangerous for everyone.”

Similarly, the Secretary of Security and Chief of the City Police Diego Kravetz stated: “In the City, the person who has a housing difficulty has the possibility of going to hostels. Anyone who does not accept the possibility of going to hostels cannot sleep on the street. He has to go sleep there or somewhere other than the city. There is no intermediate point: we are not going to allow ranching.”

The official reported that the CABA “went from having 725 people who were walking through the City in some way, without having a roof, to almost 9,000.”

From the beginning of his administration, Jorge Macri ordered the eviction of ranches and camps for homeless people. Weeks ago he disclosed on his networks “order and cleanliness operations” that showed the before and after of several Buenos Aires corners.

In this context, the civil association Proyecto 7 that works on the problem of homelessness had expressed: “The head of Government Jorge Macri, and some officials from the Ministry of Human Development and Habitat, used it to try to justify the reprehensible operation of Order and Cleanliness, where they show videos where in the “before” there is a homeless person sleeping and in the “after” he literally disappears.”

“The difference between whether we or they use it is: when we say the street is not a place to live it means: vindication and restitution of systematically violated and violated human and constitutional rights,” they added.

“Specific laws on this problem that regulate public policy for the entire State as a whole. Integration Centers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with the active participation of its inhabitants in them. Popular censuses with adequate methodology, raking the entire City, with real quantitative and qualitative numbers. Comprehensive interdisciplinary work for a process of improvement of the population. Pots and breakfasts in the streets for those who are still on the streets. Containment, accompaniment, love, solidarity, companionship,” they concluded.
