9. (2013 October) Video: Land Grabbing -Oxfam & World Bank Conference

The following video produced by Oxfam urges YouTube viewers to tell the World Bank to put big land deals in poor countries on hold until other solutions can be worked out.

“Land grabs are tearing whole communities apart, leaving people hungry and homeless. It’s big business at a big cost. But the World Bank has the power to be a force for good. With your assistance, it can help protect the rights of the world’s poorest people.” -Oxfam

The World Bank Land and Poverty Conference at the World Bank Headquarters in Washington, D.C., March 31 – April 3, 2014 is such an opportunity for Georgist scholars to offer LVT as a solution. The World Bank is now asking for papers to be presented at the conference. Contact Alanna Hartzok at earthrts@pa.net for more information.
