1. Contains: Palm Oil - Make Palm Oil Labelling Mandatory


    from Abby Simpson Added 729 2 5

    Deemed a “conservation emergency” by the United Nations it is beyond time for us to do something about unsustainable palm oil. There are less than 400 sumatran tigers remaining and in 5 years wild orang-utans could be extinct. Introducing mandatory labelling of palm oil will pressure companies to move to Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO) and stop deforestation in Indonesia and Malaysia. We need your help to make this change. Please watch and share our film to increase the momentum of the sustainable palm oil movement. Some FUN links for y'all!!! http://unmaskpalmoil.co.nz/ ~ the group leading the movement in NZ and AUS.

      • RAI interview with Alfredo Bini about his documentary, "Land Grabbing or Land to Investors?"


        from Alfredo Bini Added 49 0 0

        Interview made by the Italian broadcasting television RAI, about my documentary movie "Land Grabbing or Land to Investors?" filmed between Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia and EAU. Land grabbing or developing land? It is on this ambiguity that all exploitation of land is based. The film comes into being as a complement to the photo reportage by the director/photographer and focuses attention on how the massive investments in farming land aimed at promotion the policies of food e water security, actually endanger the rights and the basic resources of the populations who live there. Monocultures take the land away from the populations and cannot be considered development because they do not help the countries to reach self-sufficiency, but orient them towards export putting their food security at risk. Point-black questions and answers between investors and activists who contradict themselves, but the images of the film speak on their own. "Over the next 40 years the world’s population will increase by 34%. To feed everybody a 70% increase in agricultural production will be necessary”. * *Committee on World Food Security, at FAO, October 2010. It had not been long since the bread revolts and the sudden increases of rice and grain prices which pushed the producing countries to decelerate or block all exportations, leaving many countries to search in a panic for new supply channels. It was clear that all this would trigger a global race for food stocks, and the Arab states, historically sensitive to food security policies, were the first to move, followed closely by astute investors looking for new profitable business ventures. Because Land Grabbing, if practised on a large scale, is in fact a business where the risk is practically zero. It is aided by funds set aside by the sovereign states who support companies investing overseas, favoured by the EU green policies for biofuel production, supported by funding from the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund and often, through specific insurance policies, it is even guaranteed against the stability risk of the country concerned. All this is discussed and decided in meetings and summits held a long way from the territory which will be the object of the investment and even further from the people whose life and work is rooted in the land concerned. I started working on it in December 2010, with a temporary interruption during which I worked on the Arab revolts. The choice of Ethiopia as an example country for Land Grabbing was natural to me, as the country had benefited just months previously from food aid from the World Food Program and from the biggest humanitarian aid project in all Africa. A country where more than 6million people survive thanks to food aid actually exports agricultural products cultivated on the land leased to foreign investors. A paradox. Hence the objective of this project: to try to get people thinking about the fact that having a generous spread on our table, a bunch of fresh roses on our bedside table or being able to use green fuel is the result of very complex dynamics, often funded by the taxes we pay, all at the expense of the unknowing inhabitants of the third-world countries.
