    Blogpost by Danielle van Oijen - 3 March, 2014 at 12:44

    Anniversaries can vary in significance, both to people individually and to wider audiences. On paper, the first anniversary of the introduction of a piece of timber legislation might not be a birthday that is chalked up in many people’s calendar.

Greenpeace is calling on the French Ministry of Agriculture to take appropriate legal action and seize the illegal timber.
