National Day of Action
SOS: Save Our Southern Forests

November 13th, 2014
Let's send 10,000 messages!

PLEDGE TO TAKE ACTION NOW


Join us on November 13th to send an SOS of more than 10,000 messages asking EU policymakers to Save Our Southern forests. 

Todayís biggest threat to Southern forests is the expanding biomass industry. The wood pellet industry is expanding at a rate that is impossible for Southern forests to sustain. Our beautiful forests are being clear-cut, processed into pellets, and then shipped to Europe to be burned for electricity. We know that our forests arenít fuel, and thatís why weíre sending an SOS to EU policymakers to Save Our Southern forests. 

PLEDGE TO TAKE ACTION NOW

On November 13th, as the wood products industry meets in Chesapeake, VA, to celebrate the destruction and export of our incredible forests, people from across the U.S. are coming together for a National Day of Action to send an SOS to Save Our Southern forests. With 20 existing wood pellet facilities and 33 proposed, itís crucial that we show EU policymakers that the biomass industry is bad for our environment, our communities, and our economy. Join us in sending an SOS of more than 10,000 messages to EU policymakers.

Come learn about the issues, talk with community members, and find out how you can get involved.  Free admission. Light food and beverages will be served.

Organized by The Canary Coalition and co-sponsored by the Jackson County Branch of the NAACP and OccupyWNC.
