I meant to post this in December. It’s from Simba Russeau’s blog, Witnessing Life.
Simba’s a remarkably talented producer, journalist and photographer. She produced many of the stories I filed with Free Speech Radio News back when I was reporting on Hawaiian resistance.
The article is about how the Nature Conservancy and African Wildlife Foundation partnered up to buy Samburu land, then violently evicted the Samburu from the land and then gifted the land to the Kenyan government. Here’s the link: http://www.simbarusseau.com/kenya-indigenous-samburu-land/
This type of story is really important to track because so much of what goes on with indigenous peoples, with Hawaiians, is via the non-profit industrial complex or the NGO industrial complex. And so many of these organizations have agendas that are not in the best interests of the people of the land.
