Corporate power over territories and people

RecNyeleni

The recently launched number of the Nyéléni Newsletter for food sovereignty, highlights the importance of the struggle against the growing power transnational corporations are gaining and the negative impact this is having on people’s lives. Water, seeds, land, among others, are becoming more and more a core part of the business of a group of corporations, which pursue their activities with impunity, leading to a kind of “corporate colonialism”. The newsletter echoes crimes committed by corporations against communities in Nigeria or the privatization of cities in Honduras.
