Stop Land Grabs Petition

Several international organizations have been investigating and reporting on the corporate and foreign government’s land grabs happening across Africa. We’ve covered it and the Ethiopian government’s policy of forced villagization herehere and here. Now the Oakland Institute has put together a petition to U.S. president Barack Obama and the USAID administrator Dr. Rajiv Shah, asking them to stop their support to the Ethiopian government while they engage in such deals. You can do something. Sign the petition here!
