Life, Land and Justice in Uganda

Lake of Wrath.

Kalangala, Lake Victoria, Uganda.

John Muniishya lived every day of his life beside one of the world’s greatest natural tourist attractions. Then the bulldozers tore through his small farm, sweeping him and the entire local community from their land. In the Ssese Islands of Lake Victoria, corporate bulldozers have cleared vast swathes of jungle to plant palm oil, cutting through not only the local environment, but the communities that tended to its sustainable jungle farms. Land grabs and the destruction of nature in beautiful locations such as this are driven by ever-increasing demand for resources in Europe and the developed world.
