Bank and our customary lands

Dear Editor,

Re: A.D.B expands presence in Samoa 

This is the same A.D.B that is in partnership with the H.R.P.P. to take all of Samoa’s Customary Land. 

This is the A.D.B that says Samoans are not indigenous people even though the UN says otherwise and so do not get the Indigenous Safeguard Protections.

They who are not Samoan have decided to replace Customary Land with taxable freehold land in the name of only a few of our people while the government owns all the land. In other words money forever with far better odds for a corrupt government even than a casino.
