Description: Man from the community of new Fenicia, Nicaragua explains what a SOLCARSA, a Korean multinational, plywood installation has done to his village. Fenicia was forcibly relocated to make room for the installation. 1998 Due to internal and international pressure, SOLCARSA was forced to shut down. At that time over 186,000 sq. kilometers of original forest were saved. Unfortunately illegal logging continues in the Bosawas and the reserve is being depleted of its biodiversity, threatening the lifestyles of forest dwelling peoples.
