Don't Approve Agricultural Plan That Will Displace 100,000 Farmers!

A plan to lease 240,000 hectares of farmland to investors is threatening to displace more than 100,000 local residents. The Lurio River Valley Development Project aims to produce cotton, corn, sugar, ethanol and livestock. It's estimated that 500,000 people will be affected by the plan, with 100,000 forced from their homes.We must speak out against these types of plans, and make sure that any plan going forward includes investing in local farms to keep local communities healthy.
