INTERNATIONAL DAY AGAINST TREE MONOCULTURES

This WRM bulletin is a contribution to the activities to be carried out on September 21st, International Day Against Tree Monocultures. Friends of the Earth International, Global Forest Coalition and World Rainforest Movement agreed to join forces for raising awareness on this day about the social and environmental problems resulting from the expansion of such plantations. In line with this collaborative effort, the editorial of the bulletin has been jointly produced by the three organizations. More importantly, the articles included reflect a broad range of impacts and struggles in different continents and on different types of plantations. We hope it will serve as a useful tool for 21 September.
