ACTION to stop HSBC from funding old-growth rainforest logging:
Bank continues to fund logging companies pillaging old-growth rainforests and
causing human rights abuses in Sarawak, Malaysia, and expanding globally. After
ravaging all but 5% of Sarawak's once pristine tropical rainforests, HSBC's
Sarawak clients – described in Papua New Guinea as the "Malaysian timber mafia"
– now dominate the global, ecocidal old-growth timber industry. Anyone
participating in the industrial destruction of Earth's last old-growth forests
– be they banks, governments, corporations, or NGOs – are legitimate protest
targets, if we are to maintain local well-being and a habitable Earth for all.
Please demand that HSBC end all involvement with old-growth rainforest logging.
