Now communities are 'harrassing and extorting investors'
Isn't it more important that the human rights of the indigenous people are being ignored as if they were not human?

I think it's about time for others to impose sanctions on the UK for the abuse of human rights.

Please boycott palm oil! Nutella, "natural no-stir" peanut butter, most brands of margarine and microwave popcorn, instant ramen, Hershey's chocolate spread- all contain palm oil. If we stop buying it, they will stop destroying rain forests for it!

If we take away the need for palm oil we take away the reason to expand their production. Boycott palm oil.
