Vandana Shiva (India, RLA 1993)
Land grab in Africa
Ethiopia, where several million people depend on food aid, sells vast parts of its farming land to foreign companies and governments, and exports food and biofuel to the Western World and the Middle East.
Vandana Shiva states: “We are seeing dispossession on a massive scale. It means less food is available and local people will have less. There will be more conflict and political instability and cultures will be uprooted.”
