To end poverty, we must stop the rapidly growing wave of land grabs sweeping the developing world. In these countries, land sold to foreign investors as 'unused' is often actually being used by poor families to grow food. Their homes, jobs and livelihoods are taken from them - sometimes violently - and there is nothing they can do about it. That's why we're demanding G8 leaders act to stop land grabs when they meet next week in Fermanagh. Please REPIN to show your support.

Big land deals in poor countries are leaving people homeless and hungry. Families are being unfairly evicted from their land and left with no way to grow food or earn a living.

Shocking new statistics released by Oxfam this week have shown that governments are letting people hide at least $18.5 trillion in offshore tax havens. If these companies and individuals paid their dues, it would total more than $150 billion – money which could be spent on schools, hospitals and libraries. As austerity bites, ordinary people across the world are losing out on billions of unpaid tax.
