This great little animation explains how families are being unfairly evicted from their land and left with no way to grow food or earn a living as a result of big land deals in poor countries.

This is sad, and it shouldn't be happening anywhere. Someone needs to figure out how to put a stop to it. The Big Oils are even doing it in America, foreign companies using Eminent Domain, that was never intended for their use. They should be arrested for theft.

Excellent observation Barbara of the parallels of this to the pipeline issues in the US! You cannot currently send a star to Barbara because you have done so within the last day.

In America it's called imminent domain and can be executed to justify anything the big corporations or their ilk do. They justify it and anything as long as it's "in the interest of national security". This started under the Bush regime and Barky is a big fan. This is how they justify the pipelines and fracking.

I can't get the video, but this is no surprise,sadly.
Eminent domain was a part of the U.S. process long before the Bush years, but may have been used much more intensely during those years.
Large and multinational corporations are the Nazis of today, not giving a damn about the impact of their policies on the human population..
