Workers Revolutionary Party – 700 HAITIAN FAMILIES EVICTED FROM MAKESHIFT CAMPS


Haitian authorities forcibly evicted nearly 700 families from two make-shift camps in the last two weeks, reported Amnesty International.
Hundreds of families were left homeless in a new wave of evictions.
The families, all victims of the earthquake over three years ago, were not given enough time to gather their belongings before their shelters were destroyed.
Police officers violently evicted 84 families from camp Fanm Koperativ in Port-au-Prince on 22 January. 
Ten days earlier, on the third anniversary of Haiti’s devastating earthquake, municipal officials and officials from the Civil Protection Agency forcibly evicted around 600 families from Camp Place Sainte-Anne, also in Port-au-Prince.
Amnesty is calling on the authorities to stop all illegal and violent evictions of people living in make-shift camps and take meaningful steps to provide them with appropriate housing. – Workers Revolutionary Party
