Gambella Snapshot: US Aid to Ethiopia Supports Forced Relocations for Land Grabs

OaklandInstitute – Jan 25, 2012

Ethiopia is forcibly relocating 70,000 people from Gambella to make fertile land available for foreign investment in agriculture–aggravating current hunger while laying the groundwork for future famine in Ethiopia, as people are losing their livelihoods and being moved to areas where they cannot readily feed themselves. Speak out against evictions for land grabs!

Sign the petition to President Barack Obama and USAID Administrator Dr. Rajiv Shah today: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/7/stop…
