There have been serious developments since we launched our land grabs report into evictions, some violent, in Uganda, where at least 22,500 people lost their homes and land and many have been left destitute. In the past week, members of the evicted community have reported feeling intimidated and harassed after questioning by workers from the New Forests Company (NFC). 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.
We urgently need your support to get justice for these vulnerable communities in Uganda. Click here to send an email to the Chairman of the NFC, Robert Devereux, demanding he take immediate action.
