La Terza Cue, Caaguazu, Paraguay

A smallholder sets off a firecracker to alert the population that pesticide fumigation is taking place on large scale farmland near their community. The warning acts as a signal to occupy the soyabean fields in order to try and stop the fumigation which, local farmers believe, is harmful to the environment and their health. Such actions have seen the police intervene on behalf of the soyabean growers resulting in injuries to protestors.
