Behind him, a group of activists hold banners reading '100% Crime'. Mauthe was attacked by soya farmers who threw fire crackers during a Greenpeace protest. The MY Arctic Sunrise blocked the discharge of a barge loaded with soya at Cargill's illegal soya port in the Amazon rainforest. Soya expansion is one of the leading causes of deforestation in the Amazon as huge areas are destroyed to accommodate agricultural demand. The soya is exported to Europe for animal feed.Locations:Brazil-Pará-Santarém-South AmericaDate:19 May, 2006Credit:© Greenpeace / Ricardo BelielMaximum size:3504px X 2336pxKeywords:Actions and protests-Camera equipment-Cargill-Confrontation-Day-Forests (campaign title)-Greenpeace activists-Greenpeace crew-Greenpeace staff-Illness-KWCI (GPI)-Outdoors-Photographers-PortsShoot:Action against Cargill Soya in BrazilActions are taken against Cargill Soya Facility, responsible for the export of Amazonian soya which is the main cause of the deforestation of the Amazon Rainforest. 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.
