Near the Thai-Cambodian border, women from the Kao Bart Village are fighting for their land rights. After Thailand’s communist government encouraged farming in this remote region during its reign, their farms were sold off to corporate interests for the cultivation of eucalyptus. However, the women have refused to give up their land, protesting in Thailand’s capital and facing violent attacks for occupying their homes. Now they are working to maintain collective organic rice fields and vegetable plots, while working working with a local organization to fight for land tenure. Photo credit: La Via Campesina
