The French government has failed to end the vicious circle of repeated forced evictions of Roma which have now reached record numbers, Amnesty International said in a report published today. The organization is calling for a ban on all forced evictions.More than 10,000 Roma were evicted from informal settlements during the first half of 2013. "France makes no provisions for effective protection against forced evictions. In most cases they take place in a climate of hostility with no alternative housing proposed.
"Roma people are condemned to a life of constant insecurity, and forced to wander from one of makeshift camp to another. Forced evictions should be banned in law," said John Dalhuisen, Europe and Central Asia Programme Director at Amnesty International.
