“There are times when one tragedy, one crime tells us how a while system works behind its democratic façade…To understand the catastrophe of Iraq, and all other Iraqs along imperial history’s trail of blood and tears, one need look no further than Diego Garcia.” ~ John Pilger
The story of Diego Garcia is shocking, almost incredible. A British colony lying in the middle of the Indian Ocean, Diego Garcia is an island phenomenon of natural beauty, and one of peace.
All this began to end when an American rear-admiral stepped ashore in 1961. At the behest of the American government the British Foreign Office then set into action a plan to secretly and brutally relocate the island inhabitants, making way for what is today America’s largest offshore military base.
With ‘Stealing A Nation’, celebrated journalist John Pilger unearths a powerful conspiracy and reveals the terrible human cost paid by the Chagossian’s as they were cruelly removed from their ancestral homes, relocated against their will or understanding and then victimized, forced to live in abject poverty while the British and American governments strengthened their economic and military relationship.

Simply put, ‘Stealing A Nation’ is a film you must see to believe.
