This documentary Land Rush: How Do You Feed the World?—Why Poverty? (Enhanced DVD) is about poverty and exploitation. In a US$600 million deal, the land of Mali was sold to foreign investors. Mali is a country in Africa where 75% of the people are farmers. They rely on the food produced from their land to survive.
In this documentary film, it is easy to see how the country is being exploited. The land was sold to the highest bidder, which in this case was America versus the Chinese. Therefore, all the food grown there in Mali goes elsewhere and now the local people starve. This is shown in graphic detail in this documentary film.
This is true and cannot be hidden. The richest nations on earth exploit the poorest ones to get their agricultural production. See for yourself how the tiny nation of Mali succumbs to the pressure of finances and money power to be used by international companies in exploitation for food resources. Everything grown is now exported. All that comes from this fertile land is shipped away. Meanwhile the people of Mali starve to death.
They made the awful agreement. No. The people made no such agreement. The corrupt government of Mali made this agreement. All the farmers had to go along and now the result is that the people of Mali, including all the women, children, will die from starvation because their land was sold.
