Authors, journalists, poets and playwrights know that every time the right words are put to paper, or typed to a screen, our planet gets a little better. Because, without the right to express ourselves freely, we cannot make positive change.

More than 240 authors from around the world including Man Booker Prize winners Margaret Atwood (The Handmaid’s Tale) and Yann Martel (Life of Pi), writer and comedian Stephen Fry (More Fool Me) thought leaders like Naomi Klein (The Shock Doctrine) signed a pledge with Greenpeace to support free speech and stand up for forests.

Just like your favourite author’s voice, yours is vital.

Sign this petition calling on the publishing industry — which buys millions of pounds of book paper from Resolute — to stand up for forests and free speech.

Publishers and authors are natural allies in the fight to protect free speech.

The power of words, and the incredible work that authors and publishers do every day, provide inspiration and energy to everyone. We are grateful for their voices and commitment to free speech and forest protection.

Stay tuned on social media ! Greenpeace will be at the Book Expo this week in New York, connecting with publishers and readers, and displaying an art installation called Treewhispers by artist Pamela Paulsrud, an ongoing international collaboration awakening our heartfelt connection to trees.

Please join more than 240 authors from around the world, who have signed a pledge to support free speech and stand up for forests.
