Separate from TLIO, Who Owns England? is an Investigation project being conducted by Guy Shrubsole and Anna Powell-Smith attempting to display major landowners in England, combining public data with Freedom of Information requests. To follow the investigation and help fill in the gaps, visit the Who Owns England? blog.

Another arm of The Land is Ours’ body of ongoing discourse is the Legacy of Colonialism Forum
Here’s a snippet from the homepage to it: “…the British Empire was simply an extension abroad of the exploitation of the British people by royalty and the privileged few which had been going on in England systematically since the time of William the Conqueror. Furthermore, there was the colonial power’s imposition of models of enclosure upon countries of the South ie. sociological/cultural trends in the North’s historic development in terms of the systematic policy of kicking people off commonly managed lands to build up a mass of “rent seekers” combined with other factors such as the systems suite of business innovations (double-entry accounting, fractional reserve banking, the joint-stock company, etc.) to advance the capitalist system’s ability to capture value and systematize wealth extraction”
