Protestors Gather At Tiffany Stores Worldwide
Survival International supporters demonstrated on February 3 outside Tiffany stores in London, San Francisco, Madrid, Paris, and Berlin to protest at the company funding water boreholes for game animals on Bushman land where the people are forbidden access to their own borehole.
The protestors handed in a letter at their respective stores asking Tiffany to withdraw its financial support for the boreholes.
Bushman spokesman, Jumanda Gakelebone, said, “Tiffany is supporting the government but ignoring the Bushmen. It should not be giving money to the government while we don’t have any water. Its money is being used to oppress us. This is our land and we love it.”
Survival supporters demonstrated to start a campaign calling on the company to withdraw from cooperating with the government until the Bushmen are allowed to exercise their right to water.
