Gates Foundation Plunders African Agriculture

gated-development-coverFrom a recent article in The Ecologist:

The Gates Foundation – widely assumed to be ‘doing good’, is imposing a neoliberal model of development and corporate domination that’s opening up Africa’s agriculture to land and seed-grabbing global agribusiness, writes Colin Todhunter. In the process it is foreclosing on the real solutions – enhancing food security, food sovereignty and the move to agroecological farming.

The article is a thorough summary of a report by Global Justice Now: ‘Gated Development – Is the Gates Foundation always a force for good?’. It goes into detail about the foundation’s extremely dodgy connections and actions. Well worth a read.
