World Rainforest Movement

A PowerPoint presentation based on local testimonials

Depletion of water sources, changes in flora and fauna, loss of land, human rights violations, destruction of the social fabric: these are just some of the problems brought about by tree monocultures.

Those who know more about this than anyone else are the local communities who have suffered this invasion first hand, but whose protests and struggles are systematically silenced by powerful corporations and their allies.

This PowerPoint presentation (available at: http://www.wrm.org.uy/plantations/21_set/ingles/monoculture2008.pps) is aimed at providing a forum for these voices, so that they can spread, circulate and join with others, culminating a single, unanimous, forceful call to bring an end to the destructive model of large-scale monoculture tree plantations. We hope you will use this tool to spread these voices and their message.
