MRG Podcast: August 2011

Alternative content

Welcome to Minority Rights Group International’s August 2011 podcast. This month we visit an isolated cow-herding community in Cameroon and hear about how competition for land and resources leads to conflict between neighbours, and learn about the challenges Dalits in Nepal face to escape the age-old caste system. Our minority music selection this month comes from Colombian superstar Toto la Momposina, whose tunes, like her ancestry, blend indigenous traditions with both Spanish and Afro-Colombian influences.
