Landbesetzungen in Honduras
Posted by entdinglichung - 23. April 2012
“Several thousand farmworkers in Honduras have taken over 30,000 acres (12,000 hectares) of fields as part of a dispute between the laborers, land owners and the government.
Police and soldiers read an eviction notice later in the day and roughly 1,500 farmworkers peacefully left a large sugar plantation near San Pedro Sula. But at least 10 other farms were still occupied Wednesday night, said Mabel Marqúez, spokeswoman for activist group Via Campesina.”
