ASO, EJOLT and GRAIN | 21 October 2011

Grabbing Gambela is a short video documentary about a massive takeover of agricultural lands in the Gambela Region of Ethiopia. Since 2008, the Ethiopian government has signed deals with investors from India, Saudi Arabia, China and other countries for large-scale agricultural projects in the region. The deals give foreign investors control of half of Gambela's arable land. In this documentary, local people affected by the land deals speak about their experiences.

Grabbing Gambela is produced by the Anywaa Survival Organisation, EJOLT, and GRAIN.

Stop further destruction by Bidco Africa! The No2Bidco Campaign in Uganda and Kenya request support for their struggle against Bidco Africa- a multinational joint venture involving Wilmar International that has decimated Bugala Island Uganda, clearing some 18,000 acres of rainforest to make way for an oil palm plantation. Sign this letter to request that the UNDP immediately disassociate from the project.
