"People Before Profit": WITNESS Video on Forced Evictions
Bookmark and Share

In the lead up to World Habitat Day on October 1st, WITNESS was proud to announce a new video "People Before Profit” – bringing communities across the world together to tell the global story of forced evictions. WITNESS has supported campaigns on forced evictions for more than 10 years. During this time, these projects have amplified the voices of communities across the world.

For World Habitat Day, the organization is bringing many of these voices together for the first time to tell another story. Specifically produced for local communities facing forced evictions as a solidarity-building tool, the video was screened at WUF 6 during the session on Forced Evictions.
