This report documents mass forced evictions carried out between July 2004 and July 2006, and examines what steps have been taken by the authorities to implement recommendations made by Amnesty International in 2003 and subsequently. This report further analyzes the legal developments that have occurred in Angola since 2003 and shows that the new Land Laws do not conform to the ICESCR. The report calls on the Angolan government to ensure adequate legal and other protection against forced evictions and to place a moratorium on all mass evictions until such time as these protections are developed.
