These shantytown structures which have been built without lawful rules regulations, or certified sound of any risers plans are unsafe and many can be seen to be unsafe just looking at photographs.
Conditions for little children and all others no matter what legal status in these unsafe death traps must be immediately evacuated or rescued.
Before any Hurricane, tornado , flooding along this low southern coastal atea these residents must be evvacuated as it is likely all possible govt resources will have to be diverted to their rescue.
human rights people if they truly know the conditions of these illegal shantytowns would be trying to evacuate and looking for better coditions for their safety and well being ,...instead of trying to prolong their stay in these shantytowns..?....

Somehow our policy of apprehension or defence of our territory enables poachers decimating fishing and ocean assets, illegal migrant boats repeatedly penetrate borders wooden boats unlit nighttime endangers shipping...endamgers themselves, drug boats .....The policy of protecting our waters.....needs to evolve.....needs to incorporate an air wing with light planes......light arms.....to cover large swathes of ocean quickly.....and report back.....enabling best use of types of naval vessels to triangulate best base from which to dispatch fastest vessels to intercept ....Defence needs to incorporate Radar and surveillamce balloons....our ocean space needs to be mapped out and defence apprehension checkpoints fixed to maximize enable best use of resourse to defend territory... An AIRWing of dozen plus planes capable of 2-400 knots needed...proactivve rather than reactive is needed.

In addition to Financial Consumer Protectoon Agemcy or Burreau like the UK and US....there should be An agency to audit banks separate from that of the Bank Supervison...there are many stories out there in the public that there must be some Agency to complain to...I have heard these stories from being in the line just alone...people get annoyed eaiting and evetyyhing comes out....free info for Banking Complaints to give could only improve service for the pore peolle
