Cargill: No Blood for Palm Oil
Land-hungry pulp & paper and palm oil corporations are evicting forest communities from their traditional lands to clear the way for corporate industrial expansion in the name of producing cheap commodities for global markets.
Last Tuesday, six unarmed villagers were shot while harvesting palm oil fruit on their ancestral land in Indonesia. According to the Jakarta Globe the villagers had an ongoing conflict with Kresna Duta Agroindo, a palm oil affiliate of the notorious Sinar Mas Group, when they were attacked by the notorious National Police‚Äôs Mobile Brigade (Brimob) in the province of Jambi.
Cargill, Inc., as the largest importer of palm oil into the United States, is implicated in this inhumane violence because Cargill's CEO Greg Page still allows the company to purchase large amounts of palm oil from Sinar Mas and other dirty suppliers.
