UK company grabs land from Tanzania’s poorest to grow biofuel crops

An ActionAid-led investigation into UK-registered Sun Biofuels has revealed that the company has taken 8,200 hectares of land from the poor people of Kisarawe in Tanzania to grow crops which will be turned into fuel and exported to rich western countries. This land grab has left thousands of Tanzanians even poorer and hungrier than they were before the company arrived.
