Forest_Defenders
the time is has come. the time is now. we must stand together and do what we can to stop deforestation. it is such a big problem. and you and i can make a difference. it only takes a few to stand up to get things changed. 


why is it important? the forests of Earth, give us life. they are the richest and most unique ecosystems there are. they provide water, air, food for most living creatures. it is the cornerstone to eco balance. if we lose our forests and rainforests, we die. they are not ours to rape and pillage. they belong to all living creatures. we are not the center of the universe. 


thanks to fuckya dubya and the big corporate Weyerhauser, Boise Cascade......our forests and rainforests, here and around the world are being raped and destroyed faster than ever for nothing more than corporate greed. if you take just a few moments and go to some of these web sites and do some reading....you will see just how dire it is and what you can do about it. 


be a smart and educated and compassionate consumer. ask where your wood and paper products come from. do not buy wood or paper that comes from old growth forests or rainforests or endangered trees!! its up to you to put pressure on the big corporate rapists. help get the word out. tell everyone. sign the petitions. get up and help at the peaceful protests. be a volunteer. give money when possible. post bulletins. spread the word! 

and if you can say yes to any of these questions, then you are prolly in the right place! hehe
