The Maasai, Northern Tanzania

The Tanzanian Government has this year expressed intentions to review the boundaries and size of Loliondo Game Controlled Area, in the Ngorongoro District in Northern Tanzania, from 4,000 square kilometres to 1,500 square kilometres.

This will result in the displacement of thousands of Maasai people from many villages.  History reveals a gradual and accelerated infringement on the Maasai's rights through forced displacements and restricting legislation, disguised for the benefit of the environment and conservation.

SPEAK is assisting the Maasai with a mission to provide those affected, relief and remedy available under international law.
