Urgent Action Update: Hundreds Of Roma Forcibly Evicted (Italy: UA 63.17)
Hundreds of Roma living in the settlement of Gianturco were forcibly evicted on 7 April. Dozens of families had already left the settlement due to intensified police checks and harassment and many are feared homeless. The 200 people still present on 7 April were moved to inadequate alternative housing or rendered homeless and vulnerable to other human rights violations.
Amnesty International is concerned about the fairness of proceedings leading to the trial and conviction of Leonard Peltier, an Anishinabe-Lakota Native American who was convicted of murdering two FBI agents.
