farmer protest[edit]

At the end of March 2011, media reports and eyewitnesses say about 400 paramilitary troops, tactical unit police and militia members and riot police have dispersed a large-scale, 5-day protest by thousands of farmers who were upset about being moved off their land for a dam without adequate compensation.
