Déplacements forcés d'habitants de communautés rurales en Zambie

Le gouvernement zambien manque à son devoir de protéger les droits des habitants de zones rurales qui sont déplacés par l'installation de vastes exploitations agricoles commerciales dans le district de Serenje, a déclaré Human Rights Watch dans un rapport publié aujourd'hui.



Ruth Mwitwa (left) and Gloria Kango were convicted of criminal trespass for being on land they have lived and farmed for decades, and now belongs to a commercial farmer. They were sentenced to three months’ imprisonment and were detained with their breastfeeding children. Gloria was also four months pregnant during her detention.
