    This is the one video I was most advised not to make. But here it is. I decided to make it out of anger. It's unbelievable. The current discourse on poor slum residents is out of this world. "They'll kill you, rob you, you have a camera, you're white, they'll track you, they robbed me a year ago, they stabbed my friend, etc etc" But people forget, there is a million people in these townships. If the same stabbing happens in New York, we say: "Oh, just one crazy guy". If it happens in a slum: "all of them are crazy". Don't get me wrong. I felt unsafe at certain times. I almost cut this video short and went back to my hotel. But the family calmed me and told me that, yes, it's dangerous, but it's not as dangerous as the world makes it sound. The family that hosted me has no criminal record, ...

It focuses on the informal settlement of Kibuye, one of Kampala’s 63 slums, capturing everyday life and documenting how technology is helping the community participate in decisions that affect their quality of life.

ACTogether is also keen to increase the involvement of academics in the slums’ future planning. It initiated the “Urban Studio” project a partnership with Makerere University in which students spent time interacting with residents and learning first-hand about life in the slums — something that was missing from their academic courses. http://www.scidev.net/global/cities/multimedia/better-life-ugandan-slums.html

1:31am UK, Tuesday December 13, 2011 Alex Rossi, India correspondent India's poor are being priced out of slum areas in Mumbai with some shacks being sold for more than £50,000 ($78,091.10). The Dharavi slum, which is home to more than one million people, used to be on the edge of India's richest city. But as Mumbai expanded it now enjoys a prime centrally-located position. Residents of Dharavi can get anywhere in the traffic choked-city relatively quickly. We were shown around one dwelling by Raju. His house is tiny but he shares it with his wife, children and parents. There is a vibrant community life in Dharavi slum Its size though has not stopped him getting an offer of £53,000 for the property even though he does not own the land underneath the building. "There is great interest here," he explains. "There is a commercial complex next door and that complex wants to expand so my house is now very valuable." Mumbai's shanties began life as clusters of illegal dwellings on public property, including parks, roads and pavements. Politicians realising the number of votes on hand made them a permanent feature of the landscape by providing electricity and water. The Dharavi slum is also home to many flourishing businesses and has a unique economy worth hundreds of millions of pounds. As the rag shops, metal factories and food kitchens have become richer so have their owners. Sheik Yusuf, a builder, can afford to leave but says moving out is not an option in a city where the average commute is measured in hours not minutes. But the slum which started as a place for the economically destitute is now out of reach for many. Rajendra, a local politician, fights for the rights of the poor. He says many people now have no chance of ever finding a home. "Land costs more, nobody can afford it. It means the person struggling for the livelihood for their day-to-day livelihood is not in a position to come here. It is unaffordable." It does of course create questions. With India's population continuing to grow and many people migrating from the countryside to cities like Mumbai, where will all these extra people live?

Slum residents in Manila clashed with police and demolition crews on Thursday. Their homes are being torn down for a new construction project that has been years in the making. At least two people were injured on Thursday as slum residents in Manila clashed with a demolition squad sent to raze their homes for a new construction project. Illegal settlers threw rocks, bottles and debris at the demolition team. Residents also charged at policemen armed with shields and truncheons. [Dita Flor Santos, Community Organizer, Sanlakas]: (Tagalog,female) "The residents will not leave - this is the step we are taking. They have decided that they will not budge until the government holds a dialogue with them." Illegal settlers usually resist relocation to less populated provinces due to lack of jobs, high transportation costs to the capital, and poor amenities.
