Report by Green Scenery on land confrontation with SOCFIN
 One month after the confrontation between land owners in the SahnMalen Chiefdom, Pujehun District in southern Sierra Leone and the SOCFIN Agricultural Company (see WRM Bulletin 197, at http://wrm.org.uy/articles-from-the-wrm-bulletin/section1/
sierra-leone-farmers-reject-land-grab-for-oil-palm-plantation/), Green Scenery published a 13-page report on the clamp down on community members who have been advocating for their rights to their land.
