Land Grabs in Africa: Economic Growth or Re-Colonization?

Led by Anuradha Mittal from the Oakland Institute

This session provided an overview of the reality of land grabs in Africa, based on extensive research and advocacy conducted by the Oakland Institute.  Topics discussed included resistance from impacted communities, grassroots and national organizations in Africa, and solidarity networks and ways to join and support this struggle.

Check out the Oakland Institute's latest report and film on land grab in Cameroon. Our Joining Hands network in Cameroon RELUFA is taking up the Herakles Farms land grab as a campaign and also has come out with a report on Herakles.
