Land grabbing: indigenous peasants are cast out from their ancestral ground because of large-scale cultivation of oil palm.

Partner sein collaborates closely with others Swiss organisations which pursue similar aims, especially with the relief organizations of the two other sister Churches. Bread for all, Fastenopfer and Partner sein occur together in the Ecumenical Lenten Campaign since 1993 and reach through the Lenten agenda, the poster action and media work a large part of the Swiss population. Every Old catholic household is especially invited to contribute to the collection of donations of the Lenten Campaign, and a lot of parishes organise get involved in special events, mostly ecumenical, to increase the donation amounts. Besides a special mission collect is raised on Trinity Sunday (after Pentecost) in every Old catholic parish of Switzerland.

The slogan of the Lenten Campaign 2017 is
Earth spring of life, not source of profit !
The campaign deals with the land grabbing : international corporate groups plant large-scale monoculture like palmoil. They maximise thus their profit and cover the growing need of palmoil in industrial countries like Switzerland. The indigenous peasants are expelled from their ancestral land and loose their basic life resources.

This film in French gives an understanding of the issue.
