A secret film from Zimbabwe shows that approximately 700,000 people have been left homeless. The video, smuggled out of the country in August, shows images of people queuing for water and living in camp squallor. The Zimbabwans lost their homes during Opertation Murambatsvina, a drive designed to cut crime and illegal actiity. The UN has reported that these people living on the outskirts of Harare, have been left with no shelter, food or much clean water.

Amnesty International has released a secretly-shot film from Zimbabwe, showing what it says is the squalid aftermath of Harare's slum clearances.
The clearances have left about 700,000 people without their homes or livelihoods, according to UN estimates.

The human rights group said its film showed people made homeless and then dumped at an informal site.

The government of Zimbabwe have commited acts that violate the basic human rights of its people. There is fear that the government can do this to other parts of the country with the intention of an 'urban renewal' agenda. These people are being treated like bags of rubbish at a dumpsite.

Now the pertinent question remains, who will speak out against these obvious human rights violations, and of those who speak, which ones will vehemently engage this goverment untill it digresses from it's current accord? Far to many times have western and other such influental goverments acknowledged that they were aware of these violations and genocides, but many have failed to react accordingly.

Silence and indifference is the greatest sin of them all, as a great Jewish Holocaust survivor once confirmed.
