One of the most repressive and violent regions of Honduras, since the 2009 coup, is the Lower Aguan river region of northern Honduras, where the country's largest and wealthiest land-owner, Miguel Facusse (also a direct supporter of the 2009 military coup), is using extreme levels of repression - often supported by the military and police - to forcibly and illegally evict campesino communities from their lands, so as to increase his cultivation of African Palm trees and sugar-cane for the production and sale of "green energy" (bio-diesel and ethanol fuels) to global energy markets. Over 80 campesinos have been assassinated in this region alone. A documentary by Alba sud and Rel-UITA about the land conflict in Bajo Aguán, Honduras, with the support of the The World Rainforest Movement (WRM), Food First International, The Coordination of Popular Organizations of the Aguán (COPA), Radio Universidad (UCA Nicaragua). Funded by: NGG (Germany) i LO-TCO (Sweden), Comitè de Empresa de Serveis Funeraris de Barcelona (Spain)
