This petition and others has been posted previously on the care2 group
"ORANGUTANS: Men of the Forest"

Please - do sign the petion and join the group to help fight against Palm Oil plantations that are eliminating the world's rainforest to pursue the West's demand for biodiesel fuels, cheap food oils and cosmetics.

The rainforests are facing ecosystem collapse... it is a real threat within the lifetime of your grandchildren, that our rainforests and ultimately, the lungs of our planet, could disappear forever! Palm Oil plantations do not offer us the biodiversity required for LIFE! Orangutans and other aniamals are being murdered, driven off the land in this greedy land grab. Go and look on "ORANGUTANS: Men of the Forest" The whole story is there!

5,343 signatures...this petition is stalling and deserves a bit more exposure... the big Palm Oil companies (Giants like Wilmar) are not going to pay attention to a few irritations... it is going to take some real resistence.

Thank you everyone here for coming to help... this petition has been on the go for some time, and you've all helped to reignite it! Many thanks and loads of stars to you all.

Thank you everyone... with your help, the petition is now receiving signatures again every few minutes. While the counter still seems to be stuck, the signatures will be recorded.

The voice of reason shall prevail if we just shout it hard enough at those who would profit from murder, destruction and greed.

Just as a matter of interest... I visited Borneo some years ago... it is a beautiful island, but the deforestation is tragic... the Central Kalimantan area noted in this is toward the South part and middle part of the island.... take a look at the projected deforestation image at this website. There will be nothing left for wild orangutans by 2020. This is only 6 years away. It is so scary!
