Cameroon: Declaration by NGOs & Associations on land grabbing by the government & Biopalm Energy Ltd.

In response to the issuance of a decree assigning a large part of their ancestral lands to an oil palm company, indigenous Bagyeli communities -as well as the national and international NGOs and associations who support them- have issued a statement calling on the Cameroonian Government to reconsider their actions and to protect the lands and territories of local communities and indigenous Bagyéli peoples, in accordance with the international instruments of which Cameroon is a party.
