« The Corporate Capture of African Agriculture » film wa produced by Rosa Luxemburg Foundation in partnership with the Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa, Biowatch South Africa, and PELUM Tanzania. It expose how multinational corporations are influencing Africa’s agricultural future. It shines a spotlight on AGRA (Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa), launched in 2006, primarily funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which has a narrow concept of productivity, focused on yield enhancement for a limited number of grain types. This approach overlooks centuries-old farming practices, wisdom and resilience strategies that African farmers have depended on. The film urges the empowerment of farmers as a crucial step to breaking free from the corporate dominance over African agriculture.
