Description

Reokadia is 65 years old and she lives in Kalangala, Uganda with her husband, 6 children and 4 grandchildren. She has 4 acres of land that belongs to the local church. She is angry about the way the company has not only destroyed the forest but then restricted their access to fire wood. She says all the surrounding forests have been cut down, the wood that lays on the ground is now rotting and when her children attempt to gather some for cooking, the company employees chase them away. With these increased levels of poverty due to lack access to land, many people are now turning to charcoal production as a form of income generation, further contributing to deforestation.

This video has been produced in association with the source project thesourcefilm.org for Friends of the Earth International. Music by Gary Reuben Morris - hoorayface.bandcamp.com
