Africa: Stop forced evictions in Africa [Demand Dignity]

By Amnesty International, , Index number: AFR 01/007/2009

The phenomenon of forced eviction in Africa is a massive human rights scandal that should be stopped immediately. Instead of taking measures to improve the housing and living conditions of people, particularly those living in poverty, many governments are driving people further into poverty by forcibly evicting them from their homes and communities without any alternatives. This leaflet explains the right to adequate housing which includes the right not to be forcibly evicted.
