Thank you! We have to put a stop to the destruction of our planet! People around the world must unite. There are billions of people! We can save our planet if we spread the world and put out a global call to action.

So glad my Hershey bars have no palm oil...
This is nothing new, just the places have changed. US Mega-Corps go into countries that need money or that they think can be bought and plow under massive amounts of land and trees, leaving wildlife dead, dying, and/or decimated...and Natives and locals dead, hurt or jailed if they protest.
Read and noted with disgust and some amount of shame that it's America's Mega-Corps and GOP/TP doing this crap. Thank you.
