Greenpeace activists have just locked down three more excavators bringing to a halt all seven of APRIL's excavators in one of the pulp and paper's concessions in the Kampar Peninsula.

Earlier this week Greenpeace released fresh evidence of APRIL conducting forest clearing and peat drainage in this area. There are strong indications that the peat is deeper than three meters - illegal to drain under Indonesian law - despite APRIL's statements that it has ceased operations in the peninsula.

Greenpeace activists will keep the lockdown and direct action until APRIL issues a public statement in which it commits once and for all to stop all clearing in the Kampar Peninsula.
