“Two years ago, a toxic palm oil spill wreaked havoc on Guatemala’s Pasión River. The palm oil company REPSA was implicated in the disaster. When local communities fought back, they were met with violence — culminating in the murder of environmental activist Rigoberto Lima Choc and the kidnapping of three human rights defenders. To this day, no one has been held accountable. REPSA continues to operate freely. And any activist who dares to denounce the company’s activities faces intimidation, threats, defamation campaigns, and even assassination plots. Cargill needs to do more than pay lip service to human rights. It needs to stop supporting conflict palm oil now!”
