A global movement
As a record of this year’s Community Land Week a series of short films were made – each one giving a different flavour of the local circumstances and the people who made these community acquisitions possible. One in particular stood out for the links it made between what’s happening in Scotland and the global community land movement. Our complex relationship with land begins to make much more sense when placed alongside some of the struggles that communities elsewhere have faced. When Action Porty told their story alongside Milka Chepkorir, a community activist from Kenya, surprising parallels emerged.
Aproduced during Community Land Week which focuses both on the achievements of Action Porty from Portobello, Edinburgh and the connections with forest communities in Kenya.
