Yes Dr. Watson these Savages need to be civilised and taken forcibly from their homes, we just cant have anyone living peacefully and naturally as they do. Oh and remember that their land is not the richest source of diamonds in the WORLD......
(because if the land was rich surely its people will be rich too?! the botwana life expectancy is 35 and there HIV and AIDS are running rampant amongst other illnesses- Botswana was rated as one of the more ethical countries but the people who hold the ancestry there are being persecuted, do they deserve to have choices- at least!!!)
IT IS ELEMENTARY dear watson elementary
The combination of De Beers (who are making lots of money out of Botswana) and the Botswana Government (whom are mainly funded by the diamond mining industry) are not properly compensating the native peoples for loss of health, way of life and culture, their joint company Debswana is making far more money from the San Bush peoples land then they are giving back to the bush people. They have taken their land from them. Its not money the Bush people want but at least this fact demonstrates that the Government are not playing fairly. The Bushmen’s culture has been crumbling because there way of life is being suppressed. The Bushmen are ancient peoples living peaceful ways of life in tune with nature: people we could do with more off not less. They are ecological because they are part of the ecology
Please support the HUMANITARIAN PROGRESS INITIATIVE and TELEPHONE some people who need to make way for TRUE PROGRESS in humanity-
DE BEERS and BOTSWANA GOVERNMENT.
don’t be rude or aggressive
we just want to make a ‘real’ vocalisation of rights of people to live their lives peacefully in their natural settings
PLEASE MAKE A PHONE CALL- Best before 13TH DECEMBER
THERE IS A FEW DAYS LEFT BEFORE A COURT DECISION INFLUENCING THE RIGHTS OF ANCIENT PEOPLES TO CHOICE AND ABILITY TO PASS ON THEIR WAYS AND MESSAGES FOR GENERATIONS TO COME...

*Call them and state your personal place of support to the Bushmen…
*You can say your name and/ or ask them to contact you,
*Get them to at least register your concern,
*You can ask De Beers if they feel it’s alright to make lots of money mining diamonds from a piece of land that belongs to tribal peoples and not offering a fair share.
*Or simply call any or all of the telephone numbers and say ‘the san bush people want to go home’ * feel free to talk with them as much as you like (or that they will allow)
however please remember we do not endorse aggression, negativity or anything like this.
Through the power of false ownership, the native tribal people are being forced to bow down to wishes that their government have imposed on them.
Without full and proper regard for their lives the government is in fact illegally moving them and restricting them from their land.They are being threatened and persecuted. They have been interlocked in a HIGH COURT case for the longest time in Botswana history to decide whether the enforced actions are in fact illegal- the financially ‘poorest’ have had to pay for a court case with one of the richest groups of the country- the Government (backed by De Beers).
The decision will be made on 13TH DECEMBER by 3 judges who may or may not be ENDORSED by DIAMOND MINING COMPANIES!
In these last crucial few days we need to amplify the message:‘THE SAN BUSH PEOPLE WANT TO GO HOME’ and it is their humanitarian right too.
PLEASE HELP us to show great support for these deserving people in the last few days before the decision… We want to use the tool of telephone as it is more personal and harder to ignore than email…
Speak out, Say what the Bushmen want us to say (they want to go home)
Botswana has been rated one of the less corrupt Governed states in Africa. It is however difficult to believe the idea that the bush people are being treated in a non-corrupt way as the Government suggests.
Or that De Beers is having no effect on the Bushmen because they are only occupying a tiny part of the reserve that the Bushmen are being thrown off…
If a big diamond mining company and a ‘big’ government get together and between them push innocent people off their land without consent, how can the government say this is preservation?... They are saying the Bush men are overhunting (a group of 100 people on a piece of land the size of Switzerland).. in response to this they have cut off their water supply and have been pushing them off the land and making them criminals to stasy or try and go back home...Over hunting?! Surely they could accuse themselves far more of the same thing and to their own human brothers and sisters.
What we can say with certainty is that the Bushmen are not happy to leave their ancestral lands and they are being moved out in an enforced way. The reserve is the size of switzerland so is plenty big enough for all parties concerned....They want to go home...call the numbers please
