You are depriving somebody of something. This doesn't seem wrong to you? The grazing land they were using now has a fence around it. They can't dig up coal themselves, as some bugger hgot their fuirst, has put a fence and is digging it all up and selling it off, not letting anyone else do so themselves.
They can't live on spot X as someone else has cordoned it off, built a city block on it and demands to be paid to live there.
