Greenpeace forest campaigner Bustar Maitar talks with Sinar Mas officials at the main entrance of the Sinar Mas building. Greenpeace is demanding a halt to continuing destruction of Indonesia's last remaining forests by the company, which contribute to Indonesia's fast rising greenhouse gas emissions, making it the planet's 3rd largest climate polluter. Greenpeace took action because Sinar Mas and the Indonesian Government are failing to do so.

Greenpeace wants to celebrate this success with its supporters who have contributed so much to this groundbreaking development.
