Trucks of soldiers and police entered the Central Kalahari Game Reserve today. Survival believes this is to intimidate the Bushmen, and perhaps even force them out, because:

1) Gem Diamonds wants to open a diamond mine on their land;
2) the Botswana High Court is now due to hear a Bushman application to reinstate their water borehole.
