The process of land grab is worldwide and constant.It inclides both farm, forest and urban landas well as jungle and what he grabbers like to definngs of Western colonialisme s 'marginal. From the 16th century and the behinnings of Western colonialism and interrnal European colonialism the grabbers claim that they are entitled to other peolpe's land because they will use it more 'efficiently' as defibed by themselves. An ideology of productivism is made to suit the needs of capital and its restless need to accumulate. This same rationalisation is used today when post-2008 this processhas sped up.It is one in which an increasingly rentier capital aims for total control of the means of subsistence.
