Smith Moeti, an #Indigenous Bushman from #Botswana, speaks in front of the Court of Appeal about the denial of rights the Bushmen face by the Botswana government. Smith’s uncle, Bushman elder Pitseng Gaoberekwe, died in 2021 and has since been denied the right to be buried on his ancestral land, inside the Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR). The appeal court will decide whether the burial will go ahead or not. Preventing #Indigenous people burying their loved ones on their land is shameful. Support the Bushmen. -- Act Now: -- #TribalVoice is a project by Survival International, the global movement for tribal peoples. More than one hundred and fifty million people in over sixty countries live in tribal societies. From the Amazon to the Kalahari, from the jungles of India to the Congo rainforest, Tribal Voice gives them a platform. They experience appalling racism and genocidal violence. Their lands and resources are stolen for profit. Their ways of life are being deliberately and systematically destroyed. Here they speak out about what matters to them; watch, listen, and get involved:
