I don’t have much faith in court: Hartman

Panaji: "More Goans need to learn how not sit on the fence. People turned a blind eye, when unregulated mining took place in Goa. It was the age of greed," said Hartman de Souza, speaking about his book 'Eat Dust: Mining and Greed in Goa' at the Goa book club. He added that Goans who had travelled abroad, had not travelled the length and breadth of Goa and did not know what was happening to their land.
De Souza, a former journalist and theatre director of Space Theatre Ensemble said he doesn't believe in courts but in people's power which was lacking during the years illegal mining took place. "I don't have faith in courts as much as I do in agitation. People need to come out on to the streets to make their voices heard," he said.
