Feeling the biofuels pressure in Guatemala

In the Polochic Valley, in the North of Guatemala, several indigenous communities were violently evicted from land that has been in their families for generations to make way for plantations to grow sugar that could be turned into biofuels to fuel cars in Europe. After losing the lands they had worked and lived on for generations, many live in precarious conditions and struggle to feed their families.
