The fashion chain Benetton is currently involved in a difficult conflict with a small community of indigenous Indians in the Patagonia region of Argentina. In 2004, the Benetton group forcibly evicted a couple from their rural home, having finally to resort to police intervention. The Mapuche Indians have gathered the support of international activists and a Nobel Peace prize winner in their fight against giant landowners. Benetton is the largest foreign landowner in Patagonia, Argentina, with close to a million hectares of prime farming land, which helps to support the textile industry’s demand for wool.
