The rejection of the 1500 peasants is the reason for illegal possession of land by SABmiller, which supports that the company exploited the land without legal permission to do so. Given the situation the company is based on a legal remedy which is a trade protection agreement between the British and Honduran governments, which despite this agreement local families tried 4 times to recover the land, suffering the same number of evictions.

SABmiller is the owner, continuos with repression with the help of local authorities remains, which until that information is available, have been used to force the order to suppress attempts to possession of the land, the farmers say is theirs.
