PRESS RELEASE BETWEEN THE OGIEK OF KENYA AND THE BUSHMEN OF BOTSWANA
We the 'hunter-gather' and the 'Bushmen' have unique human rights
violations that include discrimination, oppression, harassment,
marginalization and lack of political representation in parliaments and
government sectors. We do reaffirm as a sign of solidarity that "self
determination and affirmative action should prevail to the Bushmen".
FOR over 20,000
years, clans of hunter-gatherers have survived in central Botswana’s stark,
desert plains. Now, a handful are left, locked in a bitter dispute over their
right to remain in what has been declared a wildlife reserve.
