Days to stop the forced evictions!
Thanks for telling the World Bank to stop the violence! Now send the Bank President a direct message (cc Kenya Country Director, Diarietou Gaye) to hammer the point home.

S/N & Shared on FB!..we should be preserving the natural world & it's people & live to the best of our ability in harmony with nature!...& thus avoid the possibility of thoughtless Greedy regimes selling off land to the highest bidder!...enabling Big business Firms to desecrate even more forest land in the name of progress & profit!..Trees are an essential part of the ecosystem protecting life & land from the elements!..WHEN ARE PEOPLE GOING TO RECOGNIZE THIS!??
