How did the community react?

Comment on community reaction
"limited consent": when the company "started to look for land ... many villagers sold the land ... But villagers found that the eucalyptus plantations started to affect their rice fields as well. Suwan Kaewchan, a member of the Laem Khao Chan Tambon Administration Organization in Laem Khao Chan village, explained: "When the company came and started planting eucalyptus near the rice fields, the water began to dry up and people found they couldn't grow rice. One by one they began to sell their land and leave" (http://wrm.org.uy/oldsite/bulletin/83/Thailand.html )
