Dirty Palm Oil
ساعت ۱:۳۳ ‎ب.ظ روز ۱ اسفند ۱۳٩٢ : توسط : عباس محمدی

امروزه فقط حدود 400 ببر سوماترا در جنگل‌های اندونزی باقی مانده است. این تعداد کم، با جنگل‌زدایی ناشی از تبدیل جنگل‌های بارانی به کشتزارهای پالم روغنی در خطر انقراض‌اند؛ با ورود به "لینک" انتهای این یادداشت و امضای تومار، به کارزار رویارویی با این جنگل‌زدایی بی‌رحمانه بپیوندید.

Nearly 120,000 of you amazing people have signed the Tiger Manifesto six days since it launched globally. This is incredible! And we have some good news to share with you….

….Today, we are one step closer to forest and tiger-friendly products: Belgium-based international retailer Delhaize Group has become the first supermarket chain in the world to commit to a No Deforestation Policy with full traceability.

As few as 400 Sumatran tigers are left in the wild because their forest homes are being destroyed – but your support can change that.

25,000 people sent emails to the CEO of Delhaize, hundreds left messages on the companies Facebook pages and many directly challenged store managers at their nearest Delhaize store in Belgium. Each time, the same request was made: Delhaize must ensure that the palm oil contained in its products do not contribute to the destruction of forests and push the Sumatran tiger – numbering as few as 400 in Indonesia – to the edge of extinction.

Dear Friends,

March 14 is quickly approaching! Plans for this year's International Day of Action for Rivers are already in motion. Events range from a river clean-up and ecology workshop in South Africa, a concert in the UK, and a demonstration and rafting event in Chile. Actions are planned around the world in countries including Portugal, Egypt, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Macedonia.

In order to make it easier to tell us about your events, we now have an online submission form! Please follow the link to tell us about your events – http://bit.ly/DayofAction4Rivers2014.

This year, we are asking partners to participate in a photo project called Rivers Are in Our Hands. We invite you to submit a photo with a message written on your palm with the hashtag #RiversUniteUs. Please encourage your friends, family and community to join in and spread the word – let’s make it a truly global event! Submit your photos to dayofaction@internationalrivers.org. On March 14 we will release a slide show with everyone’s submissions.

Here are a few other ways to get involved:

* Organize a river clean-up, film screening, kayaking event, ceremony or community walk along a river

* Take to the streets and protest a destructive project threatening a river you love, or hold an event to educate your community about the benefits of truly sustainable energy

* Start a letter writing campaign asking your government to protect your river

* Take a picture with a message on your palm with the hashtag #RiversUniteUs

* Like us on Facebook to engage with other events happening around the world

As always, feel free to contact us at dayofaction@internationalrivers.org and happy planning!

In solidarity,
