This image shows a very small part of the clear cutting that has been done by the Malaysian company of Sime Darby northwest of Monrovia, Liberia on April 25, 2012. The company owns concessions to 220,000 hectares of land that will be used for the production of palm oil. Communities in the area are not happy with the payments made to individuals, and/or communities, and are suffering in many cases because the clear cutting has isolated communities, destroyed crops, and destroyed, or polluted water sources.
