Action for Imataca Forest Reserve in Venezuela

Joining a campaign launched by Global Response, a message was sent on May 27th to the Presidency of the Supreme Court of Justice of Venezuela, requesting the revocation of controversial Decree 1850 that permits mining activities in the area of the Imataca Forest Reserve, in Venezuela. The Decree has been severely questioned by environmental and academic Venezuelan organizations (see WRM Bulletins 4, 6 and 7)
