Stopping the World Bank from Land Grabbing

26 May 2014

BRG (PNG) and PANG (Fiji) are supporting a campaign stopping the World Bank from land grabbing in the developing world. The World Bank uses its political and financial might through its investment agencies and institutions to force developing countries to follow a pre-prescribed model of development based on the neo-liberal principles of privitisation, deregulation, low corporate taxation and free market fundementalism.

Women in Agriculture

5 Feb 2013

Everyday in Papua New Guinea's rugged eastern Highlands province, the nation's biggest business success story is taking place. It is the story of women farmers. In PNG, where up to 97% of land is owned by the people, land is life. And women are the backbone of the land. But they earn little government respect for the vital role they play, and support from men is lacking. The women leaders of the group 'Eastern Highlands Women in Agriculture' works with over 1,500 of these unsung heroes on whose backs PNG's real economy leans. In this documentary, meet some of the women doing remarkable things through their creativity, compassion and determination. They hold the future of a better PNG in their hands.

People before profits: New video on forced evictions

8 Oct 2012

Most development projects, at face value, seem aimed at improving the lives of people. The reality for communities living at or near a project -- be it a dam, a sports complex, or a shopping mall -- is often quite different. Forced evictions regularly do not uphold obligations to fairly consult, compensate, resettle and rehabilitate communities. An estimated 15 million people are affected each year. WITNESS, with partners around the world, are bringing the stories of communities facing human rights abuses and forced evictions to the government officials, the courts and corporations who can make change.
