The video "Uganda: Resisting Industrial Oil Palm Plantations" was produced by the Informal Alliance against Industrial Oil Palm Plantations in West and Central Africa.
It highlights the resistance of communities in Buvuma Island in Uganda where the Bidco company (partially owned by the transnational Wilmar company) is trying to expand its oil palm plantations. By making false promises including the use of smallholder schemes , the company wants to expand its control over territories and peoples’ lives.
However, communities are determined to resist and raise awareness by exposing the deceiving practices of the company so that other communities in Uganda and elsewhere do not fall into the same traps.
