Pension funds and other institutional investors are buying up farmland and speculating on agribusiness all over the world.
Pension funds are supposed to help us save for the future, but by putting more and more money into destructive agribusiness ventures, they put our future at risk and destroy communities in the process.
Forests in Brazil and elsewhere are being razed and burned to make way for cattle ranching and plantations of soybeans and oil palm, and communities are being pushed off their land so that it can be sold to foreign investors.
Family farmers in the United States are on the verge of disappearing in the midst of the biggest farm crisis in a generation as land prices increase and corporations make even more profit.
Workers are being exposed to risky, speculative, and destructive investments that violate people's human rights and jeopardize the future of the planet.
Speculating on farmland and agribusiness is unsustainable and irresponsible, and these investments are financing human rights violations and the global climate crisis.
It is time to take action, and demand that FINANCIERS GET OUT OF FOREST AND FARMLAND and PENSIONS GET OUT OF PLANTATIONS!
