This book documents the history and contemporary living conditions of Chagossians who were evicted from the Chagos archipelago (Indian Ocean) during the late 1960s and early 1970s to make room for an US-military base on the main island Diego Garcia. Prior to the eviction, Chagos formed part of the British colonial territory, governed from Mauritius. When the British government concluded a deal with Mauritian leaders to grant independence to Mauritius, they demanded the excision of Chagos from independent Mauritius. Shortly after, the British agreed to make Diego Garcia available to the US. The Chagossians’ were forced to resettle in Mauritius and the Seychelles where livelihoods are poor and marginalized. In these countries and internationally, their attempt to achieve recognition of their fate and fight for their return to the islands went largely unnoticed.
