The reality behind Brazilian Biofuels in New Zealand
This is a few months old, so apoligies for not having posted earlier. But it is very important, and many withoutyourwalls readers and subscribers [have you signed up for email alerts yet? – do it!] may not be aware of this important meeting which took place in Wellington earlier this year.
The reality behind Brazilian Biofuels in New Zealand – a presentation by Padre Thorlby, Pastoral Land Commission, Pernambuco, Brazil
Thursday 22 April 2010, 6–8.30pm
at St John’s Hall, cnr Willis & Dixon Streets, Wellington
Resolution agreed to by the meeting
This meeting calls for the NZ government to halt the import of biofuels from Brazil and other third world countries because of their unsustainable production and their social and environmental impacts and calls for a mandatory sustainability code for biofuels.
