Eminent Domain: an Imminent Threat

The same laws that once brought electricity and sewage to poor and rural communities can now be used by large companies to force people off their land and out of their homes.

Eminent domain "is an action of the state to seize a citizen's private property, expropriate property, or seize a citizen's rights in property with due monetary compensation, but without the owner's consent."

In 5 minutes I will show you how my rural mountain hometown and a Brooklyn neighborhood were rent in twain by private interests using this loophole meant for public good.

It could be your home next! Know your country's laws so you can prevent them from being abused.
