Stop Bulldozing Homeless Settlements, Leaving Thousands Without Shelter

Target: Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed, President of Somalia

Goal: Stop forcefully displacing families from their shelters.

Thousands of homeless men, women, and children in Somalia have been forcefully removed from their settlements by bulldozers. Informal settlements have been destroyed, leaving tens of thousands without shelter.

The homeless rate in Somalia is extremely high. More than 2.1 million people are homeless or displaced. To forcefully evict them from the little shelter and safety they have is an extreme infringement on human rights.

The homeless in Somalia are more likely to be targeted by sexual violence, struck by illness, and discriminated against. Forceful evictions by the government must be brought to an end. Sign the petition to demand that the government protect its citizens in need and stop evicting and displacing them.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Mohamed,

Tens of thousands of men, women, and children in your nation have been forcefully removed from their homes by heavy machinery. Millions of people in your country are homeless or displaced.

To rob people of their homes and shelter is to rob them of their human right to safety. You should be working with them and attempting to help them find a home, not robbing them of the little shelter they do have. I demand that you end the forceful displacement of your citizens.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
