UN rapporteur: Who’s behind the global housing crisis? (E763)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to UN Rapporteur on Housing Leilani Farha about the causes of the global housing crisis, how big finance caused rocketing rents, the corporations behind real estate investment strategies that have caused the crisis, and more. Next, we speak to Shalini Patel, a public lawyer who represents victims of human trafficking and modern slavery, about Theresa May’s efforts to tackle these issues, alleged incompetence at the Home Office, and incredibly low standards for its trafficking department. Finally, we chat to Anne-Frederique Widmann, director of ‘FREE MEN – the Life and Injustice of Kenneth Reams on Death Row.’ She discusses the tragic real life story of Kenneth Reams.
