They say they love the people,
But displace them to develop the country.
Landowners flee in tears.
High land costs must force the people out.
Go away!                     
This land the State needs, do not oppose!
This is legal; the permit must be obeyed,
And resisters will be shot now!
They say they support the people,
But cause suffering and homelessness.
Land development must move families out.
This is my home, my land.
Please don’t persecute me!
Please don’t arrest me and send me to jail!
Without my land, I have nothing to live.
