Concentrated ownership, over-development and skyrocketing property values – all are making land less and less accessible. These recent trends in agriculture have meant big changes not just to small farmers in the U.S. In the developing world, farming is a constant struggle to survive.

On this edition, we take a look at the challenges rural people face, and the growing international movement to gain land rights.

Featuring:

Karam Saber, Land Center for Human Rights; Sergio Saor, Pastoral Lands Commission; Peter Rosset, Center for the Study of Change in the Mexican Countryside (CECCAM).; Ben and Joe Francia, the last remaining farmers in Silicon Valley, Calif.

This week’s host/producer: Pauline Bartolone.
