Argos and their land theft strategy in Montes de María: another reason to mobilize on March 6

Tuesday, 06 March 2012 | MOVICE
article thumbnail These actions began late last year, when Cepeda delivered a letter to UN Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon, explaining the company's responsibility for land theft in the Montes de María region. The illegitimacy of Argos' purchase of 12,500 hectares of land in Montes de María, bought at absurdly low prices, is exacerbated by the fact that the region was severely battered by paramilitary atrocities in the 1990s. Furthermore, Argos is part of the Clean Development Mechanism, which allows it to participate in the international carbon trading market. In order to participate...
