A new case study of our case study series on Access to land has just been released. It is entitled "Andalusia: a recent history of land issues and struggles. From unproductive latifundio to workers’ cooperatives on public land".
This document covers three dimensions:
– an analysis of recent land issues in Andalusia, and their connection with rural poverty, as well as a description of an attempted land reform,
– the presentation of the Farmworkers’Union (SOC) and its role in land struggles in Andalusia, and
– the description of three land occupations, organised by the SOC, which have enabled daily labourers and farm workers to claim access to land and make a living out of previously abandonned or under-used land.
