"Agrarian Reform for Food Sovereignty" 2010

The arrival of the Dutch in the Cape in 1652 signaled the beginning of a violent and destructive process, which placed their greed for land and possessions before the rights of the original inhabitants of the land. Suddenly, throughout the Cape, and indeed throughout Africa, following the arrival of other European colonizers, Land, which belonged to Africans, was marked as the private property of Europeans who enslaved Africans. Today, The Right to Agrarian Reform for Food Sovereignty Campaign is asking critical questions about the lack of transformation and land reform in South Africa, post apartheid, and through popular education have mobilized people to recognize their ancestral rights and reclaim land for the purpose of black, emerging, small scale, organic farming.

Directed by Kurt Orderson
