A tentative and controversial resolution has been reached in a
long-standing land conflict in Honduras. The controversy lies in the
mobilization of the military, in the form of at least 2,000 soldiers,
to pressure the campesinos into signing the latest negotiated deal. The
group of 3,500 campesino families has agreed to accept a total of
11,000 hectares from the Lobo government. The previously landless
workers continue to occupy a series of African palm plantations in the
fertile Northern Honduran valley of Aguán, until their access to the
land is assured.
