Come join an action Thursday 4 June at La Défense (Paris) in solidarity against land grabbing:
Peasants deprived of their land launched a series of occupations at the Socfin plantations in Cameroon, Liberia, Cambodia and Côte d'Ivoire late April through May. This campaign is coming to a close now with the annual general meetings of the Socfin (27 May) and Bolloré (5 June) groups. Please come to the Bolloré shareholders meeting in Puteaux (La Défense/Paris) to support the movement! Rendez-vous Thursday 4 June 2015 at 15:30 in Léon Blum Square (metro stop "Esplanade de la Défense" on Line 1) with shovels and pitchforks to dig up Bolloré's lawns. "They take our lands, so let's take theirs."
