KALAHARI BUSHMEN EVICTIONS TAKE THE SPARKLE OFF DE BEERS'S
NEW YORK OPENING
Survival International Press Release
June 23, 2005

https://www.survival-international.org

Prominent feminist Gloria Steinem and more than thirty protesters last night
picketed the opening of De Beers's first store in America. Steinem said the
Bushmen are "the real diamonds" of the Kalahari.

Survival and many independent observers believe the Kalahari Bushmen have
been evicted from their ancestral homeland in Botswana because of diamonds.
All diamond mines in Botswana are run by De Beers.
