Zimbabwe: Quantifying destruction - satellite images of forced evictions
Between May and July 2005 some 700,000 people in Zimbabwe lost their homes, their livelihoods or both as a direct consequence of the government's Operation Murambatsvina, a programme of mass forced evictions and demolitions of homes and informal businesses. This report contains "before" and "after" satellite images of four sites affected: Porta Farm settlement and portions of both Hatcliffe and Chitungwiza, all located around the capital, Harare, and Killarney, an informal settlement on the outskirts of Bulawayo. These images provide compelling visual evidence of the scale of the destruction and human rights violations which took place during 2005.
