Big land deals are putting people and their possessions out of place, forcing them from the place they call home.
To send a global message about this injustice, thousands of you, including actor Dominic Cooper, band Wolf Gang and singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, sent Oxfam photos and videos of ordinary things out of place, echoing the displacement of land grabs. And Coldplay's music video director, Mat Whitecross, put them to an exclusive version of their song, In My Place. Oxfam now needs you to raise your voices in support of change.
