I started this blog to have a safe place to tell what happened when I went to Tanzania to ask people on the ground about 12,617 acres that Thomson Safaris have grabbed and call “Enashiva Nature Refuge”. http://termitemoundview.blogspot.com/2010/03/sukenya-farm-conflict-what-thomson.html Since nobody, before the Stop Thomson Safaris website started in August 2012 (and now STS has apparently gone quiet), seemed interested in doing anything more than loose articles without following up, I’m spending some time and efforts finding out exactly what’s happening. Thomson are presenting violence and dispossession as "community-based conservation" and can't stand unanswered.
I'm also trying to provide correct and updated information about the 1,500km2 of important grazing land that the government of Tanzania repeatedly has tried to take away from the Maasai of Loliondo.
Please, contact email@example.com if you have information to share, or for any questions.
