Cattle at Estancia Santa Amalia, a large soyabean plantation and cattle-ranch. Since 2008 an indigenous group has illegally occupied part of the plantation, claiming ownership over them as they state are their historical lands from where they were expelled years ago when the estancia was created. In 2010 the land-owner, a German citizen, was attacked, allegedly by the indigenous, and they were expelled by the police. However in 2014 they returned and are currently on an ongoing conflict with the large-estate owner for the land ownership.
