Green­peace ex­is­tence in jeop­ardy

Australian Forests and Timber - - In The News -

For sev­eral years, Green­peace has been mount­ing a mul­ti­me­dia cam­paign against Canada's Res­o­lute For­est Prod­ucts, one of the largest tim­ber-and-pa­per com­pa­nies in the world. Called “Res­o­lute: For­est De­stroyer,” the cam­paign ac­cuses the com­pany of en­dan­ger­ing the Bo­real For­est, a vast ev­er­green swath that cov­ers a third of north­ern Canada. In re­sponse, Res­o­lute has taken the ex­treme step of su­ing Green­peace in the U.S. for vi­o­lat­ing the Rack­e­teer In­flu­enced and Cor­rupt Or­ga­ni­za­tions Act (RICO).
