Shoot: Forests Action at Canadian Embassy in the Hague

GP01LTE
Greenpeace activists in front of the Canadian embassy in the Hague. Activists are spraying wood chips with a shredder into the embassies garden as a symbol of what Canada is doing to its ancient forests. All of the activists were arrested. This action is part of a series of Greenpeace actions worldwide to protect ancient forests. Greenpeace wants the Canadian government to take action when it comes to preserving its rain forests. The current Canadian policy, the Forest Practices Code, is utterly insufficient in protecting the forests ecologically. Greenpeace demands a moratorium in all ecologically important areas of the Canadian forests until an ecological sufficient policy is realized. Greenpeace has a clear message today for the Canadian embassy: Stop the destruction of the ancient forests. But to realize this also the Netherlands have to take responsibility in ecological managing these forests. This is why Greenpeace Netherlands wants to stop the import of unsustainable timber. Ancient forests are thousands, sometimes millions of years old. They are diverse and very vulnerable ecosystems that are rapidly disappearing due to human greed. The existence of many species of vegetation and animals are in danger because of this. The Dutch government is not taking enough measurements to change the timber industry to start using sustainable wood. This means the government approves the disappearance of the forests.
