Currently 138 families claim historical use of the land for growing cotton and subsistence corn, saying the company has started to till their land to plant sugarcane. In response, the villagers are seeking a restraining order against the ethanol giant. The company has already set out guard dogs and armed security guards to keep them off the property.
