Overall comment

Overall comment
This seems to be a typical case of land dispossession suffered by an indigenous or peasant community whose communal territory doesn't have legal title or who don't have the possibility to inforce it because of a disaventageous correlation of forces. After a brief search, there is no public information about the investment project in terms of amount of inversion, type of crop (although this is a soya zone), legal and business arrangement, etc. Import of other remarks regarding the investment: The community goes on resisting, hoping for a favorable judgement in the court.
