About Reclaimthefieldsscotland
English (USA)

Reclaim the Fields is a network of people interested in getting back to the land and re-assuming control over food production. We are determined to create alternatives to capitalism through cooperative, autonomous, small-scale production and initiatives. By putting theory into practice we strive to link local practical action with global political struggles.

RTF Scotland is an emerging group as part of the network. Land ownership is Scotland is extremely concentrated; half the private land owned is owned by less than 500 people. We think that radical change is urgently needed to improve people's lives and the natural environment. The long-term problem of land ownership monopoly is connected with many other issues including food and health, poverty and class divides, democracy, empowerment, community and our culture.

We take inspiration from Scotland's radical history of struggles for land such as: the Vatersay Raiders who reclaimed land to survive; The Crofters' War when people in Skye resisted oppressive landlords and won back land and secure tenancies; and women in Glasgow who organised mass rent strikes in 1915.
