Bolloré: Land Grabbing and Human Rights Violations in Indonesia

In Indonesia, Socfin has land concessions of around 48,000 ha. A 2011 report commissioned by the German NGO, Brot für die Welt found labor rights violations (e.g., a lack of personal protective equipment, union suppression, and frequent peasant conflicts) at several Indonesian Socfin oil palm plantations.[1]
