Greenpeace today marched to the Indonesian Embassy to call on its government to fully shut down operations of paper giant Asia Pacific Resources International Holding Limited (APRIL) and other companies destroying the carbon-rich peatlands of Indonesia’s Kampar Peninsula in Sumatra. The group, rallying behind a banner that said “stop forest destroyers, not climate defenders”, delivered a letter addressed to Ambassador Irzan Tandjung. Greenpeace is denouncing the unfounded arrest, interrogation and deportation of journalists and Greenpeace activists trying to bring attention to the forest crimes being committed by APRIL.
