Kenya: a forest people #fightback as they are illegally evicted, beaten & imprisoned - paid for by the World Bank.
HONEY AT THE TOP is the new documentary from Dean Puckett ( Grasp The Nettle Films ) about the Sengwer forest people of the Cherangani Hills, Kenya, being evicted from their ancestral land in the name of conservation. Facing international pressure from organisations like the World Bank, a corrupt Kenya Forest Service who are burning their houses, and attempts to turn the forest into a commodity through carbon offsetting schemes, the Sengwer fight to hold onto their culture and resist the evictions.

This film captures the Sengwer predicament in relation to the World Bank project that ended in 2013. Now the European Union is in the process of seeking to implement a very similar $38 million project which, in its current form, is in danger of reinforcing the Kenya Forest Service's (KFS) capacity to evict the Sengwer from their ancestral forests.
