        Live stream recording - Saturday 1 februari 2014 - 17.04 C.E.T. http://www.debalie.nl/agenda/programma/hrw%3a-land-grabbing-and-human-rights/e_9420502/p_11170852 The rise of land grabbing has led to increased human rights violations and destroyed livelihoods. Across Africa, Latin America and Asia, hundreds of cases have emerged detailing how investors have unfairly acquired land in the name of economic development. But in the last 2 years, after a lot of public debate and campaigning, a range of policy commitments have been made by companies and governments to help stamp out this damaging practice. The big question is whether all these policy commitments are on target to achieve real change on the ground. This debate will bring together perspectives from activists, government and the private sector to look at what land grabbing is, and how good intentions can turn into positive action. This debate will bring together perspectives from Iain Levine (Deputy Executive Director of Human Rights Watch), Farah Karimi (Director of Oxfam Novib), Frits van der Wal (Senior policy advisor food security and focal point land governance at the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and Jan Burger (Coca-Cola) to look at what land grabbing is, and how good intentions can turn into positive action. Moderator Hansje van der Zwaan-Plagman (Senior advisor sustainability at ASN Bank). Program in collaboration with Oxfam Novib and ASN Bank. http://www.debalie.nl http://hrw.org

                    In the summer of 2004, the Mayor of Lewiston, Maine announced a plan to develop a four-lane boulevard across downtown’s low-income neighborhood. The project was going to displace 850 people from their homes as well as destroy playgrounds, vegetable gardens, and historic buildings. As tragic as the circumstances were, the threat of a road destroying the neighborhood required residents to rise to the challenge of becoming community organizers and resist the city's plan. This movie documents 5 years of development and community organizing in Lewiston, Maine. It reveals the strategies, the mistakes, the prejudices, the lessons… all of the difficult stuff that makes up the political process – the act of making decisions and setting policy together.
