The state cannot ignore the fact that REPSA began its operations without prior consultation of the communities in the area, which makes its operation illegitimate and illegal.
Cargill, Wilmar and other companies operating in the region, and the RSPO certification body of which REPSA is a member, must do everything in their power to ensure the safety and security of land and human rights defendersand to ensure that their rights to land, life, and liberty are fully respected.
Background on the issue: In June 2015, REPSA was identified by community, national and international entities as being likely responsible for massive contamination of the La Pasin river (one of Guatemalas largest rivers), which resulted in water pollution and the death of more than one hundred and fifty tons of fish, impacting over a hundred communities that depend on the river.
In June 2016, two of REPSAs major buyers, Cargill and Wilmar International, required REPSA to implement a Policy to Prohibit Violence and Intimidation.
Cargills announcement, made on its public grievance log on November 24, 2017, is attributed to REPSAs failure to comply with Cargills sustainable palm oil policy.
REPSAs complete disregard for the rights of local people and the environment shows the dirty nature of the palm oil industry that is undermining indigenous peoples access to land, water and food in Guatemala, said Doug Hertzler, Senior Policy Analyst, ActionAid USA.
Meanwhile, another in a series of toxic spills by REPSA or one of its sister companies is poisoning fish in Guatemala's Pasion River.

Yo creo que como valor universitario hay que preservar nuestro patrimonio y hoy el edificio H tambien forma parte de nuestro patrimonio; preservarei Espacio Escultorico, la REPSA y plantear medidas inteligentes para mitigar el impacto del edificio H sobre la visual del Espacio, se puede hacer si nos ponemos creativos.
