On 6 September, Jeremiah Makori, an activist who lives in the informal settlement of Deep Sea in Nairobi, Kenya, visited the Tor de' Cenci camp, on the outskirts of Rome, Italy, where Roma are at risk of imminent forced eviction.
This video features a double interview with both Jeremiah Makori and Ferid Sejdic, spokesperson of the Roma community living in Tor de' Cenci.

An estimated billion people live in informal settlements or slums. The multiple and widespread human rights violations, including forced evictions, that many of them experience in all regions of the world are one of the starkest representations of the link between poverty and human rights.

Every year in cities around the world, hundreds of thousands of families are thrown out of their homes without human rights safeguards. Forced evictions are unlawful under international and regional human rights law and no one should be subject to them no matter who they are or where they live.

Amnesty International is urging the Italian authorities to end systematic housing discrimination against Roma across the country.
