    A new report by the British charity Oxfam suggests that more than 22,000 Ugandans have been forced of their homes since 2004.
     
    Oxfam claims many of them have been left homeless after being evicted in so-called 'land-grabs', to clear the way for timber plantations. 

    One case involves the British firm, New Forest Company, which says it has done nothing wrong.
