Subject: saving the local farmers in Cameroon

Please save us from the evil hands of SGSOC (Herakles Farms) in Cameroon. In Nguti Sub-Division, Herakles Farms (SGSOC) is currently opening the first 2500 ha plantation block…. About 600ha of this first block already falls outside Herakles Farms (SGSOC) proposed concession limit covered by their Environmental Social Impact Assessment (ESIA). More from our web site –


Save the local farms………………….


Farming with the threats and lies - "SGSOC (Herakles Farms) always consults the communities. These are your real partners and stakeholders. We thank you for recognizing the importance of the community. In many respects, SGSOC is our own minister. It is the partner that is going to bring us the development that we need." Dr. Chief Atem-Ebako, Chief of Talangaye Village made this statement on Saturday March 9 2013 at the Kumba City Council Hall during the maiden Annual General Assembly of the association formed to ensure the smooth implementation of the memorandum of understanding signed between the company and the villages where the project is taking place.
