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

5.0 ·

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.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
