Land Grabs in Ethiopia & The Legacy of Belgian Colonization in Congo from teleSUR English on Vimeo.

HIV has been a public health issue in Congo, but what about the role that Belgian colonization played in the cultivation of this dreaded virus? The government of Ethiopia is selling off valuable swaths of land and displacing natives in the process. Why is this happening, and what is being done about it? The Global African host Bill Fletcher explores these issues with Anuradha Mittal, Executive Director at the Oakland Institute, and Lawrence Brown, Assistant Professor of Health Policy and Management at Morgan State University.
