Twenty-one forestry companies and nine environmental organizations, including Greenpeace, have signed what purports to be the world’s largest conservation agreement. As part of this deal, Greenpeace and other environmental NGOs involved are legally obliged to alert the logging companies to any environmantal campaigns run against them.

The Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement, demarking logging and conservation activities, was developed without Canadian indigenous peoples input and without regard to the rights and social realities of First Nations battling logging companies on stolen land.

As environmentalism becomes mainstream, corporations and well funded environmental organizations work hand in hand to divert the public’s efforts into market driven solutions.

“With runaway climate change looming in the horizon, we must ask ourselves what are the tactics we are going to use to stop the destruction and take us beyond symbolic gestures.”
