Nyéléni Newsletter: Community struggles for the defence of their territories – New Edition

Landgrabbing continues unabated worldwide.

It implies extractivism: control of water, mining, oil industries, deforestation, drug trafficking, environmental services and REDD projects (land areas held in disregards or so called marginal lands), and the subsequent speculation on these, followed by real estate, tourism, urban development, military geopolitics and much more.
