Land grabbing in Uganda
John Muyisha and his community in Kalangala, Uganda, have lost their land. One day, BIDCO, a Kenyan company, arrived and told him that the land was now theirs. Bulldozers came that flattened the ancient forest and John's coffee plants.

The company planted oil palms instead. With just 2 acres left to make a living, John and his community are now fighting for the right to their land.

This is their story.
