ALERT! HSBC Bank Must Stop Funding Old-Growth Rainforest Logging

By Ecological Internet's Rainforest Portal

HSBC Bank funds old-growth rainforest destructionTAKE ACTION!

HSBC Bank continues to fund logging companies [search] 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.
