AFRICA, THE WORLD BANK & BAD DEVELOPMENT:
How large scale projects are leaving everyday Africans worse off
As the World Bank leads new efforts for large-scale development projects in Africa, we ask: Who benefits from this “development" model, and who loses? Two videos will be shown, followed by a panel discussion.

We Once Lived There Thousands were displaced for the Lesotho Highlands Water Project, the largest World Bank project in Africa. Six years on, they continue to fight for what was promised. (2003, 36min) http://www.trc.org.ls/water.htm

Pipe Dreams: people of the Cameroon Pipeline Villagers and tribes affected by the World Bank oil pipeline are hoping for all that was promised --compensation, new jobs, and zero pollution-- but fear the worst. (2003, 28min) http://www.byrdproductions.com/pipedreams.html

Sponsored by International Rivers Network ( http://www.irn.org) and Priority Africa Network.
