Communities affected by land grabbing from different parts of Uganda have formed a movement to fight for food sovereignty while pushing back on land grabs by multinational agribusiness companies and individual investors. The formation of the movement came after a 3-day long meeting which drew participants from several districts including Mukono, Mubende, Kayunga, Kiryandongo and Kalangala. The communities believe that the movement will provide a common voice to challenging the injustices meted out on them through such land grabs.
