I'm a 'news junkie' but this is the first I've heard about what is happening in Botswana.
"The Kalahari Bushmen are one of the worlds oldest civilizations. For 30,000 years they have carved a life out the desert in what is now Botswana.
But for the last decade the Bushmen or San, as they are also known have been inexorably driven from their land in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. In 1997 the government of Botswana began cutting off services and forcibly relocating them to camps and settlements outside the reserve."
Ena, the idea of "...forcibly relocating them to camps and settlements outside the reserve" makes little sense, in that one should look at the history of aboriginal people around the world to see the negative aspects that resulted from such a forced move.

"The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read these books." Mark Twain
This is just part of their sad history...they're among the oldest human groups around and they've been pushed south-southwest for millenia by other groups. Even in what is one of the inhospitable places on Earth they're still not safe.
