The problem is people in more than one sense- How do they eat if this palm oil industry is destroyed?

And if it is linked to so many supermarket products how do the supermarket,manufacturing staff and customers survive as well as the poor farmers.?
I may be wrong but I feel strongly tthat some constructive plan is needed
Perhaps providing alternate crops,or food,or sanctuaries or other jobs like building and maintaining sanctuaries as that French man is doing.-that is action within the location to change the situation.

As far as the supermarkets and manufacturers are concerned- It might be best to find out what substitute action they will be likely to take. My bet is it would be locating to the Amazon or somewhere like it and driving something else extinct as well as"relocating" the indians mainly into the afterlife.

We need to think this through if this is not to be just another futile feel good exercise

The Production Companies Utilize Palm Oil JUST because it is THE CHEAPEST OIL ON THE MARKET, SO THEY CAN HAVE MORE PROFITS!!!!!!!!!!! This is why..... When used in the food it is also NOT healthy....

It is so sad to read that almost 90 percent of the orang-utan's habitat in Indonesia and Malaysia has now been destroyed, and that UK companies and supermarkets use palm oil, even though it is not the healthier option, but because it's cheaper. Man's greed is so destructive.
I wasn't aware of all this until I read about it now. Maybe a petition targetting these UK companies will help.

The People are behind this campaign and when they can easily identify which products contain PALM OIL we will BOYCOT them.
