Stop Evictions in Ghana

IAI - Amnesty International - No Vox @ IAI - Amnesty International - No Vox

This demonsration was held n Dakar, the 14th of February 2011, during the World Social Forum, to urge the Ghanaian ambassador to do what he could to halt the eviction of thousands of people living next to railway lines in the capital, Accra.
Known as the Railway Dwellers, the men, women and children who live and trade in kiosks and small structures built along the railway lines face homelessness and destitution if they are forcibly evicted from their homes.
The evictions are part of nationwide plans to redevelop Ghana's railway network following the signing of a US$6 billion contract with a Chinese company for the construction and expansion of railway infrastructure, and as part of Ghana's "Better Ghana Agenda" which aims to improve living standards for all Ghanaians.
