FSC should withdraw plantation certificates

Posted: 28 September 2006 in FSC Plantations Review

On 16 September 2006, the Tageszeitung ran an article based on WRM’s press release about organisations from eight countries demanding that FSC withdraw certificates. Entwicklungspolitik online (a German website about development politics) ran a translation of the press release.

And Rettet den Regenwald has made it into an online protest action. By 21 September 2006, more than two thousand people had signed on to the statement. And each signature has been forwarded to FSC.

Pity that the TAZ journalist didn’t bother ringing up FSC. So far there has been no formal response from FSC. It would be nice to hear what Heikko Liedeker, FSC’s director, is planning to do about this.
