Nestlé: more monkey business? #fb

Orang-utans to Nestlé: give us a break...
Hi Karen,
Orang-utans are still under threat. Nestlé continues to buy palm oil supplied by Sinar Mas – the company responsible for trashing Indonesian rainforests and destroying orang-utan habitat.
We need to keep the pressure on Nestlé to do the right thing.
At Nestlé’s Oceania HQ in Sydney this morning, six activists dressed as orang-utans greeted staff as they arrived at work. They asked Nestlé employees to email their international CEO and tell him to give rainforests a break.
Their message: Nestlé needs to cut all ties to Sinar Mas and take real action for a moratorium on deforestation. They need to take action now.
This follows on from actions unfolding all around the world. Last week Greenpeace activists ‘dropped in’ on the Nestlé AGM in Switzerland and unfurled two large banners directly over the heads of Nestlé shareholders. The message: “Give the orang-utans a break!” You can check out all the action here.
In just four weeks, more than 20,000 Australians have asked Nestlé international CEO to stop rainforest destruction for palm oil. You have joined over 200,000 people from around the world taking action to protect Indonesia’s rainforests and orang-utans – the response has been incredible.
This morning over 400 interested Nestlé staff took our flyers and we believe they can make a big difference.
Orang-utans can’t wait another five years.
Please forward this email to your friends and get them to email Nestlé’s international CEO here.

Thank you for taking action,

P.S. We need to keep the pressure on Nestlé to do the right thing. Please forward this email on to five of your friends and get them to email Nestlé’s international CEO here.
