TAKE ACTION

Deforestation, eviction, drought and murder are too high of price to pay for toxic soybeans.

In Paraguay, genetically modified (GM) soya plantations, planted in vast toxic monocultures, are the main cause of deforestation, destruction and pollution of other ecosystems, and violence and eviction of small farmers and indigenous peoples. Paraguay has nearly 2.6 million hectares of soy plantations for animal feed exports and, more recently, for agrofuel. The remnants of Paraguay's Atlantic Forest and of the Alto Parana forest, as well as wetlands, grasslands and rivers are being destroyed and polluted by the expansion of immense soya fields. Deforestation is worsening global warming and also causing severe regional warming and droughts.

Local peoples are resisting ecocide bravely, and against long odds, and need our support. Please write to the authorities in Paraguay and urge them to fully support small farmers and their demands for protection from pesticide spraying, unlawful evictions, environmental destruction and pollution; while supporting their demands for food sovereignty and land reform.

TAKE ACTION NOW: //forests.org/shared/alerts/send.aspx?id=paraguay_soya

DISCUSS THIS ALERT: //forests.org/blog/2008/10/alert-paraguays-devastation-by.asp

LIST NOTE: Together we have recently achieved victories against FSC's greenwashing, Congo's rainforest logging and Cambodia's river dams. When you do not participate, we are weakened. After protesting Paraguay's toxic soya below, PLEASE respond to subsequent alerts as well -- including calling upon governments to maintain climate policies in rough economic times. Please respond to alerts whenever you can -- regular participation is vital to continued success. And the Earth needs us NOW.
