URGENT: the EU is deciding the future of the rainforest tomorrow – it's time to speak out!
The EU has destroyed 700,000 hectares of rainforest for "green" fuels
Dear friends of the rainforests,
This is a short, sharp and urgent call for action!
Vast swathes of rainforest and the lives of thousands of orangutans and other endangered species hang in the balance.
This coming Tuesday, February 24th, members of the Environment Committee of the European Parliament will vote on the future of EU biofuels policy – and the reforms the European Parliament will make to fix this badly broken policy.
It's a really important moment – the culmination of four years of campaigning. And there is a high risk that a progressive outcome could be jeopardized by hard-liners.
Social media action will target the main members of the European Parliament: we want to send hundreds of tweets to the 100 most relevant members between now and the vote on Tuesday afternoon.
Even if you are not in Europe, please join in – the course the EU sets here will have a worldwide impact. Please can you help?!
