About 600 families were forcibly evicted from their homes in four neighbourhoods of the capital, Luanda, on 13 March. The evictions were carried out violently, without prior consultation, and without due process of law. This is the fourth forcible eviction carried out in the area in recent months, leaving thousands of people homeless and without shelter. Police also arrested two members of SOS-Habitat, including the coordinator, Luís Araújo, but released them afterwards.
