Cambodia: Action against land-grabbing

A community petition on Avaaz.org calls for action against companies that subsidized by a European Union trade scheme, forcibly displace hundreds of thousands of Cambodian farmers from their land. These schemes are intended to benefit poor countries, but in Cambodia they have incentivized companies that steal people’s land and make them poorer, while the benefits have flowed primarily to a business and political elite.

The petition calls to investigate land-grabbers in Cambodia and remove their trade privileges. See http://www.avaaz.org/en/petition/Investigate_landgrabbers_in_
