Right now in Minneapolis, a group of activists has locked down inside one of the world’s largest privately owned corporations, Cargill, occupying their executive office building and shutting down their business. Cargill is the largest importer of palm oil into the U.S. and its palm oil plantations are responsible for massive rainforest destruction in Indonesia.

These activists will stay locked down until the CEO meets with them and agrees to stop destroying rainforests.

But they need your help to get Cargill’s attention. Stand in solidarity with these courageous activists and demand that Cargill’s CEO adopt a socially and environmentally responsible palm oil policy now!

Just yesterday, RAN released an investigative report revealing the consequences of Cargill’s palm oil plantations – the destruction of rainforests and peatlands, the pollution of waterways, and large-scale land conflicts with local communities. Turns out that Cargill has destroyed an area of rainforest the size of Walt Disney World in the middle of Borneo AND broken Indonesian law in the process.

Call Cargill’s CEO Greg Page today and ask that he take urgent and necessary action to stop rainforest destruction now!

Cargill needs to take bold action and adopt a palm oil policy that safeguards Indonesia’s rainforests and communities. You can help make sure they are accountable to Indonesian law and to the local people of Indonesia.

Demand that Cargill stop clearing Indonesia’s rainforests for palm oil!

 

For the forests, communities and the climate,
