Re: Our traditional lands 

Find me one example of where land leased by indigenous people to global capitalists has created wealth for all the people without creating a huge gap between the rich and the poor and has left the majority of the indigenous people in better shape than before they leased their land to foreigners. 

Also show me one example of an indigenous group that has not suffered extreme poverty after the loss of their land to the multinationals/British who came to help/colonize them. 

Show me one example of where development for indigenous people has created a better standard of living for the majority in the rural areas or has created a better standard of living for the masses that move to the city in search of jobs.

 If your goal is to raise the standards for the elites while the majority suffer then develop and carry on.
