Amnesty International, Associazione 21 luglio ONLUS, Associazione Garibaldi 101, European Roma Rights Centre, Associazione Cinema e Diritti – Festival del Cinema dei diritti umani and OsservAzione strongly denounce the forced eviction on 21 June by the local authorities of Giugliano in Campania (Naples Province) of around 75 Romani families from the camp of Masseria del Pozzo and express concern at their transfer to an abandoned factory, in inhumane living conditions.

The organizations urge all relevant authorities to immediately ensure the affected families’ access to adequate shelter and the development and implementation of a long-term plan, in consultation with the families and in full compliance with human rights standards.
