Please help to save the rainforests & peatlands (2 minute e-action)

Dear friends,

On 6th and 7th of May, ministers from Europe and elsewhere will be meeting in Kyoto for the 40th AGM of the Asian Development Bank. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) have a long record of financing rainforest destruction for palm oil plantations in Indonesia. They are thinking of massively expanding their funding for palm oil and other destructive monocultures through their 'renewable energy budget'. Palm oil and other biofuels grown at the expense of rainforests and other ecosystems, local communities and food production are not renewable energy. ADB are already a major contributor to global warming by financing new fossil fuel power stations and exploration across Asia, and by financing deforestation. Global warming is a threat to all rainforests. Please write to ministers now to demand that ADB must fund neither biofuel expansion nor fossil fuels. Many thanks.

Here you will find a email action where you can sent your protest:

Yours sincerely,
