Human Wrongs Watch

6 June 2017 (GREENPEACE)* – When Resolute Forest Products, Canada’s largest logging company, threw two multi-million dollar lawsuits at Greenpeace and Stand.Earth for speaking out for the protection of the Canadian boreal forest, people around the world did not sit idly by.

In over 25 countries around the world, people took to the forest and their most iconic trees to send a message of unity and solidarity in the face of Resolute’s legal attempt to silence its critics and stifle freedom of speech.

From the tropics of Indonesia, people gathered in defense of the forests of Canada in front of a giant Kenari Babi tree to send their message to Resolute.

Standing next to a 3000 year old cedar tree at the Shouf Biosphere Reserve in Lebanon, Greenpeace Med Arab World Programme stand in solidarity with the message #OurVoicesAreVital to unite against Canadian logging company Resolute's multiple lawsuits to stifle free speech and the organisation's work to protect the Great Northern Forest in Canada. 25 May, 2017  © Charbel Bouez / Greenpeace
