This documentary unveils a narrative that has been deliberately concealed from history. During the 1960s and 70s, British authorities, in collaboration with American counterparts, orchestrated the deceitful expulsion of the entire population of the Chagos Islands in the Indian Ocean. This covert operation aimed to clear the principal island, Diego Garcia, for the United States, which sought to establish a major military base there. Consequently, Diego Garcia has served as a strategic launching pad for US military operations, including airstrikes on Afghanistan and Iraq.

Through firsthand accounts from displaced islanders, who were forcibly relocated to the slums of Mauritius, and testimonies from British officials, this documentary sheds light on the sinister machinations behind the expulsion. The British government’s actions, meticulously documented, now stand condemned by the International Criminal Court as nothing short of ‘a crime against humanity.’
