[biofuelwatch] Friends of the Earth Argentina vs. soy, GM and land grabs

<Argentinean Soy provides most of UK transport biodiesel>


"Argentina is one of Latin America's worst examples in terms of soy expansion. Half of the cultivable area of Argentina is harvested with GM soy. Soy has high economic yield and it benefits certain social classes that have control over land. This results in the loss of the native forest and other crops. It also means that many communities are losing their food sovereignty."

Food sovereignty is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems.

Biofuels are a wide range of fuels which are in some way derived from biomass.
