Whose Land is it Anyway? Part 2

Yesterday I wrote of Land Grabbing, from an article by Lester Brown in the latest Resurgence. Here is another stupidity he exposes:

"In the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Chinese companies have acquired 7 million hectares of land for Palm-Oil production whilst millions of people in DRC are dependent on international food aid."

That really is madness! Read the article at GRAIN for further information and to see what can and is being done to help the many powerless small holders across the world retain their land for farming.
