Palm oil firms depriving tribes of millions of dollars

Buy something in a supermarket and there's a good chance it will contain palm oil. Follow it back through the supply chain and eventually you'll find an oil palm tree, likely in Indonesia. But the companies that sell it to major firms like Johnson & Johnson, Kellogg's and Mondelēz are depriving indigenous communities of potentially millions of dollars of income, a joint BBC investigation has found.

They should take their concerns to the authorities and lawyer up.

I have to believe whatever contract was agreed on wasn't done very well.

Sounds like the tried and true work of an Economic Corporate Hit squad.


Cozy up to the leadership of the country that has the resource you crave.  Ply them with cash, support in exchange for free reign to rape and pillage said resource(s).

If leadership won't play ball, then find their opposition and begin to bolster their rise to power.


Once in a position of control alongside the leadership.  Ignore the indigenous complaints.  When the indigenous try to use their own system to gain traction, the cozy leadership stonewalls them and the profits keep rolling in...
