Lianne Milton

El Estor, Izabal, Guatemala

A plot of land farmed by a family from the indigenous Mayan Q'eqchi community of Nuevo Esperanza Tunico, surrounded by a palm oil plantation run by an agribusiness.

The family, one of 80 from three communities, resisted a court ordered eviction as Inversiones Cobra SA, a banana plantation and palm oil company, sought their land for agribusiness.

Eventually, the courts ruled in favour of the farmers, a rare success for the indigenous population in their land rights struggles.
