The effect on the local communities is extensive, forests are being fenced off by soya companies depriving the local people from using them for their livelihood leading to poverty, degradation and unemployment as the millions of dollars made by the soya landowners and exporters does not come back into the region. Greenpeace is calling for an immediate moratorium on forest clearance for industrial agriculture throughout South America. Tape includes shots of bulldozers clearing forest, dead armadillo crushed by bulldozer and fragments from the documentary 'Tras Las Huellas Del Yaguarete' voiced by Ricardo Darin and dealing with the widespread problems caused by the tropical disease Leishmaniasis.
