We urge you to cancel the lawsuit Herakles Farms filed against Mr. Nasako Besingi, Managing Director of Struggle to Economize Future Environment (SEFE). Mr. Nasako, who you accuse of bad publicity for speaking out against Herakles’ large-scale palm oil plantation project on his ancestral land, is innocent.

He undertook the fundamental and noble duty of educating his community and country on the effects this project will have on people’s livelihoods and the environment. The lawsuit against him is an attempt to prevent him from exercising his already restricted right to free speech and assembly.We assume that as an American, you understand and cherish the importance of free speech in people’s social, political and economic advancement.
