S&N. We really should pay more attention, this is happening in Africa on a major scale too. China is slowly buying up all the agricultural land in the world to feed its own people. They couldn't give a damn that the people, who were kicked of their land by their governments to make a fast buck, are going to starve.

Lona, not just China. An example is that the Masaai have been forced off their land in Tanzania which is also a wildlife reserve. As most big game animals have been killed, Arabs have bought the land to hunt in.

The trouble is that African governments are corrupt and the money goes into pockets and not for the good of anyone.
