Brief narrative

Source: COHRE Global Survey 2003-2006 found at http://www.cohre.org/store/attachments/Global_Survey_10.pdf In September 2005, police evicted 120 low-income families from occupied land in San Pedro, Jujuy Province. Police reportedly carried out the eviction with excessive use of force and burned their makeshift shelters. The eviction had been ordered by a local judge. The affected people did not receive prior notice. - ‘San Pedro de Jujuy. Desalojo, represión y canallada’ Prensa Obrera, (22 Sep. 2005), http://www.po.org.ar/po/2005/po918/po918078.htm
