Description: Anti globalisation demonstration in Prague at international meeting with IMF , World Bank & major industrial nations Sept 26 2000 . Marie Shaba , Tanzania , Professional Activist ( 53 ) . Picture taken in front of IMF conference center . " Forty years ago the World Bank advised my people to switch to high breed seeds . To make the transition easier we were offered subsidies to buy the seeds . When the World Bank decided to cut expenses , the farmers had to pay for the seeds themselves . They had to loan the money . At that time many other African countries had done the same the market was flooded with cheap crops . Because of this the farmers had to sell their land to pay of their debts . In that period the IMF programs started focussing on land reforms which made wide selections of land available for international investors . This is how many farmers became squatters of their own land . Its a sort recolonisation : without land you have no future and a man without a future is slave . Thats how the IMF works .
