A people's struggle against forced land acquisition by the State for POSCO, South Korea

An old man plants fresh betel leaf vines inside a vineyard in Govindpur village. Most tasks for the cultivation of betel leaf are not very physically demanding and suitable for old men as well. The laborers earn around Rs.200/- ($4) for a half a day, which is way more than the minimum wage that a even laborer in the city earns, which is around Rs.125/- for a full days work.
