This scramble for arable land to the detriment of developing countries who take money for thousands of acres, attracted by the prospect of bailing out their treasuries and powerless to resist economic and political pressures.

Noted & thanks Cal. Gosh, this scenario reads familiar. The poor Earth is is dire straits because the same events happening over thousands of years. Survival -no matter what the cost to the future or others. WE, as a species, just have not learned some important lessons. WE are intelligent, just not applying it very well. There are certainly alot of victims & casualties, like the small farmers in Guatemala, who probably work with the Earth most of the time, for their survival.

It is time that the UN did its job and protected the poorer countries. This is unacceptable abuse of the indigenouse people who shuld and must be protected.

I hope there is a solution to this. I will be more than happy to sign petitions or whatever it takes to allow these people to live in peace.

Is land grabbing that common in developing countries?

People's greed and love of moeny is the root of all evil. It just astounds me how people can be so greedy, callous and uncaring.
