France: Forced evictions add to climate of fear amid alleged hate crimes

19/06/2014 – Amnesty International today condemned the forced eviction carried out in the biggest Roma informal settlement in Marseille (La Parette), where about 400 people lived. According to the information available to Amnesty International, only 18 families were given alternative housing; many of the 400 inhabitants of the informal settlements, including children, have de facto been made homeless, in contravention with international human rights law.
