Laws - Detroit Free Housing Program


Just a small amount of legal knowledge concerning your basic rights can tremendously improve your life! Here we will point a few key rights that you have under law that give you power to possess a home for free.


First you must understand that the most fundamental thing to know about law is who holds the ultimate power to execute it. Many would say the government which is wrong. The ultimate power resides in The People and The People can alter or abolish government and change laws when they see fit. That is why most state constitutions mention this in the very first article.

Within the very first article of the Michigan Constitution it states: “Sec. 1. All political power is inherent in the people. Government is instituted for their equal benefit,
security and protection.” and pre-1963 amendments explains this stating: “and they have the right at all times to alter
or reform the same, and to abolish one form of government and establish another, whenever the public good requires it.”

Please note that the Detroit City Charter states the same using these words: “Detroit City government is a service institution that recognizes¬†its subordination to the people of Detroit.

The most powerful law on the planet which supersedes even the United States Constitution states the same concerning power: “Article 21.3. The will of the people shall be the basis of the authority of government”.


Many do not know but the city law guarantees that all residents have housing… FOR FREE! The city charter reads in the first article as well: “The people have a right to expect city government to provide for its residents, decent housing”. Note that is says “to provide” not to offer for sale.


Most protesters do not know that their numbers can be used to execute power instead of trying to appeal to those seemingly "in power"

The Right to Assemble has only been exercised to protest actions by government officials. What has been overlooked is the fact that the power of the assembled people can be used to instruct or give orders to officials whom are legally their “public servants”. The Michigan Constitution states: “The people have the right peaceably to assemble, to consult for the common good, to instruct their
representatives and to petition the government for redress of grievances”.


The top law of the world grants African Americans the right to reparations or remedy for the enslavement of their ancestors and the lasting effects and socio-economic condition it has left the Black community in. Article 8 reads: “Everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law”. The government of the United States already formally admitted guilt with House Resolution 194.

The opinion about reparations is drawn upon racial lines with most whites saying no and black people saying yes. If the decision is then left up to U.S. national democracy African Americans will never see reparations but by invoking their right to self-determination and lawfully taking over cities, then reparations can be self-granted.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states:¬†every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance“.

Since those whom we have voted for to uphold the law on our behalf will not do so then we must take matters into our own hands according to our rights.


The International Covenant On Civil And Political Rights, which was signed by the United States, reads: “Part 1 – Article 1..¬†1. All peoples have the right of self-determination. By virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.”

This means that every group of people have the right to be given the option of governing themselves on their own territory or allow themselves to be governed by a system established by others. After slavery Black people were not given this option so remained under racist rule of the same government that had allowed slavery. Over a century later this option is on the books yet Black people have never exercised this right.
