The Grab - https://www.videoneat.com/documentaries/26145/the-grab/

Watch this documentary to see how governments and companies go after buying Earth resources from other tribes, in all sorts of terrible ways. From arable land to water. In a crazy race to get enough for their own tribe because of the impacts of climate change that will devastate vast areas on this planet.

Very telling documentary. Some 10 years in the making.
