Aceh forest destruction

Dont let this happen, sign the petition at http://www.change.org/saveaceh



Aceh is preparing to open over 1.2 million hectares of protected forest for the development of mines, plantations, roads, logging and palm oil expansion.

Aceh government and Ministry of Forestry has deny this, but what they are not telling is the complete truth. Aceh government still plan to sacrifice thousands of hectares of protected forest for logging concessions, revive “Ladia Galaska” roading projects that has been shut down in the past due to legal and environmental reasons, and release nearly a million hectare of protected forest to East Asia Mineral, a canadian mining company who will strip Aceh forest and turn it into big hole on the ground that release tons of toxic chemicals in the rivers.

The Leuser Ecosystem on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia is in grave danger. Local politicians want to allow logging, mining and palm oil plantations in this vulnerable area. Sumatran orangutans, rhinos, elephants and tigers are already hanging on by a thread. They will not survive the destruction of the Leuser Ecosystem.

    Please spare the forest in Aceh and nurture the hidden beauty within the forest. The tourism dollar to see these creatures would out way the resource dollar that you will receive in the long term.

    Please sign this change petition to keep Canadian mining company East Asia Minerals from destroying 1.2 million hectares of the Aceh Rainforest. It’s the last intact forest on Earth where endangered Sumatran orangutans, rhinos and tigers live.
