  • Unpacking the Bahun identity Unpacking the Bahun identity

    The entire discourse on identity has focused on the dichotomy of the oppressors vs the oppressed, the CHHEM vs the Adivasi-Janajati and so forth and so on: ‘loaded term/phrase’ VS ‘loaded term/phrase’. These grand definitions lump together vast groups of people into pigeon holes, thus forcing social and political polarization.

    Dinant is not in conflict with the genuine peasant associations of Honduras: Our African Palm plantations support thousands of sustainable jobs with company pensions and compensation levels well above the national minimum wage; they have also significantly contributed to improving skills, education and health. We recognize the value and importance of engaging peacefully and transparently with those that hold different viewpoints and believe that we can find some common points of mutual interest.
