TAKE ACTION to stop HSBC from funding old-growth rainforest logging:

http://bit.ly/EI-HSBC

HSBC 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.
