South Lakeland WDM group have booked the Birdcage in Kendal main street for a morning of action and information relating to the new WDM campaign – Stop the Corporate Takeover of African Food.
Saturday May 24th 9.30-1.30
During the original ‘scramble for Africa’ in the 1890s, Europeans justified their colonialism as a benevolent mission to bring civilisation to the continent. Today, these colonial tactics are being deployed once again by rich country governments and big business who are colluding to take control of African land and resources. Initiatives with benevolent-sounding names like ‘New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition’ are resulting in control of land and resources being taken away from small-scale African farmers and handed to multinational companies – all in the name of poverty alleviation.
