State lands, mines and sorrow of death

However, the company, accompanied by the village and district government and security forces during a meeting with the citizens of this quibble, that region evicted bulldozer company is 'state land' and communities have the right to plant on it.

Companies quibble act on the correct legal basis. Local governments issue permits said "That the State Land!". The mass media are usually nosy preach about electoral politics, the debate broke down the elite, celebrity holiday, suddenly silent.

The growing citizen screams, but continued muted barrage by the roar of bulldozers, thump gun, the dream of progress, and silence the media. They are still fighting, despite continued repelled. They still speak, although always silenced. The news of the villagers have negligible resistance from the news media. Local media also nationally too busy chasing profit, by displaying figures of regional head candidate as headline them. The resistance that they can not preach to the outside world, because the telecommunications network that is not long enough to reach this coastal village.

If the mainstream media refuse to preach about the struggles of the villagers defend their land and living space, then let the solidarity, extending this news. The news of the villagers of Help and villages circumference Superpower Tough, hot ears to make the power holders.[]
