Bulletin Issue 3 – August 1997

PRESENTATION

Dear friends,
This is the third issue of the World Rainforest Movement’s Bulletin. The World Rainforest Movement is a global network of citizens’groups of North and South involved in efforts to defend the world’s rainforests against the forces that destroy them. It works to secure the lands and livelihoods of forest peoples and supports their efforts to defend the forests from commercial logging, dams, mining, plantations, shrimp farms, colonisation and settlement and other projects that threaten them. We hope that this Bulletin may become a tool for enhancing communication and information among all those people concerned with this issue and willing to contribute to stop and reverse this destructive processes. Your comments, suggestions and contributions are welcome.
Warm regards
Ricardo Carrere
