The land grabbing and human rights in Colombia - Acaparamiento de tierras y DH en Colombia

The debate over land grabbing in Colombia by European multinational companies has crossed borders and has aroused the interest of the European Parliament. In a recently published letter they criticize the victims and land restitution law, favouring commercial interests over those who demand full restitution of their lands. 25 MEPs expressed their concern about the accumulation of land and the government attempt to change the law, favouring big business.
