I would suggest you cause such a confusion, that it would be impossible to sell.
It might help if you had photos or stories to share about these people so that this becomes more real to people and then call the T.V. stations and the radio. Call your local senators and other government people. Don't forget e-mail and write every person of any importance about this.
There is no way I would go down without a fight.
It is nothing but greed and that says it all.
My prayers are with you.
