Palm Oil Tax In France Opposes Continued Land Grabs and Deforestation
by Tomas DiFiore
Palm oil expansion is 70 percent nightmare and environmental catastrophe and 30 percent transparent truths and lies. It's an Indonesian roshomon, a puzzle of GDP, corruption, land grabs of Indigenous community forests and national forests, transmigrant laborers, settlements, and employment figures, and poverty amidst the wealth of ownership statistics that dominate the palm oil sector at the landscape level. Malaysia has rejected Human Right for Indigenous Peoples at the UN 5 years in a row. Indonesia is a signatory to the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. However, government officials argue that the concept of indigenous peoples is not applicable. Orangutans, rhinos, elephants, and tigers may all but disappear from Aceh, northern Sumatra's Leuser Ecosystem. The time is critical. Boycott Palm Oil and read the labels. Palm oil is increasingly available in health foods and natural food stores in Northern California. Read the labels and ask for paperwork on supply-chain certification.
