In the articles of 06 November 2013 with the headline "Stop the palm oil industry's assault on the Amazon", under the tabs "Protest campaign" and "Backgrounds", we reported critically on various issues in connection with deforestation of valuable rainforest in the Amazonas area in Peru.
Thousands of protesters took to the streets of Durban, South Africa. Their message to the United Nations: stop promoting plantations and finally protect real forests. We delivered our petition with more than 115,000 signatures, but our campaign is far from over!
Rainforest Rescue took its message about the dangers of pesticides for bees straight to the shareholders of BASF, maker of the insecticide Fipronil. We spoke about its role in the decline of bee populations and delivered a petition with 178,000 signatures to the BASF board.
