Cargill mill occupied by Brazilian activists
Activists from the international land reform movement Via Campesina invaded
the Cevasa ethanol mill owned in part by Cargill on Wednesday.
The Cevasa property is located in Patrocinio Paulista, roughly 300
kilometers north of Sao Paulo city. Cevasa is a joint venture with Cargill and
other local partners.
The invasion occurred on the day that U.S.
President George W. Bush is scheduled to arrive in Brazil to discuss ethanol
with Brazilian president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. Related link:
