Members of the Steering Committee of the Campaign to STOP GE Trees from four continents will travel to Chile from March 20-30 to meet with environmental justice groups and Mapuche communities about the ongoing impacts of industrial tree plantations in Chile, as well as the potential for future plantations of genetically engineered trees to make these impacts much worse.
We will be reporting from Mapuche communities and documenting these impacts on this blog as frequently as we can manage.
In preparation for the trip, we will post documents detailing some of our advance work and research.
Please stay tuned.
Coordinator, Campaign to STOP GE Trees
