Help the Ogiek of Mt Elgon!

Hi Folks

Here's a community where people have been killed trying to stop their lands being taken over and their families evicted.

They are on the verge of reaching a legal agreement that will have their ancestral lands at Chepkitale returned to them, but urgently need financial help (about £5,000) in order to make these last steps possible. Our earlier account of their predicament is on the Forest Peoples Programme website

If you can't afford anything then don't donate but please bounce this message on to others. If you can, then any amount would be greatly appreciated.

You can donate through Just Giving at: Help the Ogiek of Mt Elgon!

A 1000 thanks!
