Aho to that one Robert Hardy! Most certainly signed.

Do not evict the Maasai people from their traditional land in favor of allowing a big game hunting corporation to move in.

Here we go again the removal of people to make sure the greed of the Corporate players can do as they wish.

If anyone can help the Lakota, American Indians, facing similar land grab.....please go to link:
Sioux Spiritual Leader Speaks Out on Sacred Land Grab
Chase Iron Eyes, member of the Oceti Sakowin and an author, attorney and the founder of lastrealindians.com, which publishes work by indigenous writers and artists, is raising funds to buy back the stolen lands in the Black Hills. Iron Eyes said, "I don't think it's an accident that other indigenous peoples' sacred sites are coming under attack, such as the San Francisco Peaks, or the Four Mountains of the Dine or Navajo Nation, all throughout Turtle Island - or North America - and South America. The way I see it is, this corporatocracy, or the Corporate West, is never satisfied. It just keeps consuming and destroying. This system needs to be put in check."

"We are going to find out real soon if we are able to raise enough money to buy back our own land," he said. The irony of buying land that was stolen from you is not lost on Iron Eyes: "The United States holds illegitimate and illegal title to our land. They are trying to absorb not only the Lakota people, but everybody, into the corporate West."

Iron Eyes views the protection of sacred sites as the final frontier where indigenous ways cannot waiver.

And as is also the case we can add the Maasai people in this Corporate take over that has not stopped upon them either.
