Three Khoisan Children Arrested in Botswana

Three Khoisan children have been arrested by paramilitary police in Botswana, according to Survival International

According to a non-governmental organisation, Survival International, three Khoisan children have been arrested by paramilitary police in Botswana.

The children, who were arrested for being in possession of antelope meat in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, have since been released, but further reports of harassment and intimidation have surfaced, and there have been a growing number of Khoisan arrests.

One Khoisan told Survival International, "The Bushmen are being hunted and their rights are being denied because of tourism... Police are given guns to go out and hunt and arrest Bushmen gathering bush food. The Bushmen of the CKGR cannot eat, cannot drink. How will they survive without food?"
