LAND GRABBING IN Kalpitiya

Written By Freedam to the nation resettlement of IDPs on Sunday, August 11, 2013 | 11:14 PM



The Documentary video "Orphans of Development" is  focused on the predicament of fisherman working and living across Kalpitiya's Islands, and reveals how their livelihoods are threatened as a results of the government's unplanned development activities and the interference of private investors. It brings to light the importance of at least sparing the Uchchimuna Island from tourism development activities as it inhabits permanents residents. This video aims to urge international organization to pressure the Sri Lankan government to refrain from proceeding with such development projects which endangers the lives and livelihoods of local communities to a great extant

Well Done! Congratulations NAFSO about this documentary video. This gives an idea about the land grabbing at Kalpitiya.
Do you think this will adequate to awaken the villages who are thinking their future will be prosper with tourism?
