Relocation sites are 'places of death'

The truth is that the 'relocation sites', however, are places of depression and prostitution where AIDS and alcoholism are rife. They are referred to as "places of death" by the Bushmen. The truth is that forcibly wrenching people away from their lands, homes, myths, rituals and memories is a fast route to the annihilation of self-worth and the breakdown of an entire society.
Government officials and police set up camp at Ranyane to pressurize residents into relocating.
