Many of you will have read Oxfam’s recent report on land grabs. If not, you can download a copy here.
The report highlighted the case of land grabs in Uganda where at least 22,500 people lost their homes and land and many have been left destitute, without enough food or money to send their children to school. There have been serious developments since the report was launched. In the past few weeks, members of the evicted community have reported feeling intimidated and harassed after questioning by workers from the New Forests Company (NFC).
Oxfam urgently need your support to get justice for these vulnerable communities in Uganda. Send an email to the Chairman of the NFC, Robert Devereux, demanding he take immediate action.
What Oxfam is calling for:
-We need NFC to cease this alleged ad hoc questioning of evicted people, immediately.
-We need NFC to commit to a truly independent investigation of the allegations in our report, so that we can get justice for the evicted communities.
