Noted and shared. This is so sad and so wrong. What gives governments the right to displace indigenous peoples from their lands? It's happened in America, in Canada and in Australia and I'm sure in many other countries around the world. It's always the wealthy who think they can just go in and take what they want. They know these people can't fight back very well. I cry for these people.

Why can't people leave others to live their lives in the way they want without interference it would be a better world if they did.
