This Land Is Not For Sale

This Land Is Not For Sale Image

A new music video from Indigenous Resistance & Asian Dub Foundation highlights the insidious land grabbing of indigenous peoples land that is currently happening on a global basis, mostly in developing countries.

Whether it is in Mexico or in Ethiopia, large corporations are in cahoots with local governments; who sell them large tracts of lands at below market value for commercial farms. In the process, their own governments are kicking off the original occupants and farmers of the land. Many are indigenous peoples, whose rights to their land go back before there were governments, corporations, or the thought that the land could be for sale. The intensity of the mix is captured by the video created by Earth Ritual which you can watch below.
You can read more about the landgrabbing situation in Ethiopia at this link.

Indigenous Resistance are a revolutionary music collective and close associates of Dancing Turtle.

Asian Dub Foundation continue to go from strength to strength. Later this week the band head to Russia for some live dates, before performing a live score to cult film La Haine next week at screenings in London & Paris. Keep up to developments over at their website.
