Stop Land grabbing in Uganda

Stop Land grabbing in Uganda

Palm oil corporations Wilmar International and BIDICO, along with the Ugandan Government, have funded huge palm oil expansion on islands off the coast of Lake Victoria.
A quarter of the islands has already been planted with oil palm. Most of this land belonged to local communities and indigenous peoples.
They can no longer access wells, firewood and grazing land. Forests are being destroyed, and pesticides used on the plantations are creating health hazards.
Many become casual labourers in the plantations, paid about a dollar a day. Left with little income and no means of feeding themselves they are forced to sell their land.
