Removed from their forest dwellings by government authorities in order to establish the Mgahinga and Bwindi Impenetrable National Parks in Uganda, the Batwa pygmies now live in slums around Kisoro, a town which sees tourists stream through each year to visit the parks, which were created to protect the country’s endangered mountain gorillas.
VICE News films with the Batwa pygmies, where they struggle against discrimination and poverty to survive in Uganda.
