“Around the world ‘development’ is robbing tribal people of their land, self-sufficiency and pride and leaving them with nothing.”
This simple statement introduces a hilarious (at first) 2-minute animated movie that describes how cultures are destroyed in the name of economic development. From Survival International.
The movie is called “There You Go”.
Actual examples abound. The one I know a little about is the Pacific island of Banaba (part of Kiribati) [Wikipedia], which from 1900 to 1979 had 90% of it’s surface removed by phosphate miners and it’s people “relocated”.
