Ethiopia’s displaced Negede Woitto community, the original inhabitants of the northern city of Bahir Dar, have been forcibly evicted from their ancestral home five times since the 1984 famine. The whole community are treated as second-class citizens and face constant harassment. Now a group of Negede Woitto are speaking out against their living conditions (they are currently living on a rubbish dump). They are demanding educational opportunities for themselves and their children (image by Frederic Courbet)
