[biofuelwatch] Seeing a new corporate colonialism by palm oil plantations

Multinational companies have been encouraged to seize and deforest land owned by indigenous people.

The presence of palm oil plantations has spawned a new poverty and is triggering a crisis of corruption, landlessness and hunger. Human rights violations keep occurring around natural resources in the country and intimidation, forced evictions and torture are common. There are thousands of cases that have not surfaced. Many remain hidden, especially by some local Chiefs and powers that be.

Saving the local farmers from the ghost of Herakles Farms in Cameroon!

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