Planet for Sale: The Food Crisis and the Global Land Grab (2011)

The capitalization of the commons worldwide by massive financial corporations threatens to industrialize lands that have been cared for and sustained by the native populations.  The source of these actions has to do with feeding the rich countries that have populations exceeding what they can sustain themselves and the drive to provide cheap food via cheap labor.

The result will be continued unsustainable farming centered around fossil fuels.  Families will lose their ability to self-sustain, and will be forced in to an economy they do not want.

On a personal note, you can help by eating mostly vegan, all local, and only organic.
