Ever wondered where all the money the government gives to 'develop' poorer countries really goes? In this ground-breaking collection of films and interviews Indian people affected by British aid argue that a different story lies behind the rhetoric and the pictures of smiling children.
Development aid is, in the words of one of the interviewees, "another agenda to colonise us', through which peoples' government, land, electricity and schools are taken away from them and handed over to corporations to profit from. With insight, wit and passion people who have suffered from and fought against the British Government's dodgy development (including teachers, farmers, academics, activists, engineers and journalists) explain why they have rejected it and why it is important that people in Britain do the same.
2010 report from Corporate Watch, authored by Richard Whittell and Eshwarappa M.
