In February 2000 numbers of Zimbabwe liberation war veterans embarked on a campaign to occupy white-owned farms in Zimbabwe. The veterans were later joined by land-hungry peasants and others who wished to protest against the pattern of land distribution and ownership which is heavily weighted in favour of whites. Currently, over 1600 farms have been occupied by the invaders. The Commercial Farmers' Union, largely representative of white farmers, applied to the High Court for an order that would bring an end to the invasions. The order was eventually granted by consent of the parties.
