Africa Center listened to the call of the indigenous San peoples in Africa!
On February 1, six South African San (1) indigenous leaders and supporters began a 1,497 km march through South Africa, from Knysna to Cape Town, to protest oil and gas exploration in the Okavango Delta in the hope of sensitizing the international community.
The Afrika Center is pleased to support them by joining over 150 organizations (from Canada and abroad) in signing a letter that will be sent on 4 June to Canadian officials demanding accountability and action on plans to do so. Canadian company ReconAfrica, which aims to develop “the last great oil discovery on Earth” in South Africa.
This letter highlights the enormous threats ReconAfrica proposed development poses to human rights, local livelihoods, and the fragile and world-famous ecosystem of the Okavango Delta, which provides water for more than one million people. We ask the Canadian federal government to honor its commitments regarding human rights and the environment.
You can follow Action Week against ReconAfrica on the Afrika Center website.

The French name “Bochimans” is derived from the Dutch word “bosjesman” introduced by the Boers which literally means “bush men”, “bush men” or “bush men”. The English settlers used the literal translation “Bushmen”.
