In 2008, after over two decades working for and living in housing provided by the rubber plantation, the plantation was privatised and over half of the community were forced to leave their jobs and the land on which they lived.

There was no compensation, no alternative place to live, no land available to build new homes – in fact, no way of supporting and housing entire families who were faced with homelessness and unemployment.

The community organised themselves to protest this unfair displacement.

Not only did they bravely speak out to challenge the injustice but they also agreed to being filmed so that we could share their story with our supporters here in the UK.
