The expansion of soya plantations in the region has meant the destruction of natural habitat as trees and forests are cleared to meet agricultural demand. Greenpeace confront Cargill at their illegal soya port. They are met with confrontation from farmers and police and some Greenpeace activists are attacked during the action. A protest is also made at Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) who sell chicken fed with Cargill soya which grown in these endangered areas.
