Investors in Herakles Farms: Stop Funding Destruction in Africa

To be delivered to Justin Patterson, Managing Member, Harkin Value Partners

Petition Statement

The Herakles Farms palm oil project in Cameroon is the wrong project in the wrong place. If it is not stopped, it will cause widespread social and environmental damage in an area of great biodiversity sandwiched between protected areas and national parks. It will destroy natural forests and take away the livelihoods of communities reliant on those forests.
There are currently 2,949 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Herakles Farms is a US agribusiness company who wants to plow through swaths of natural forest in Cameroon’s South west province and convert the area into a palm oil plantation. They have little regard for local laws, the local environment and - least of all - local communities, who have depended on the land for generations.

The palm oil plantation be bad news for people. It also threatens the habitat of the chimpanzee. This forest is worth more to the people of Africa and future generations if it is left standing. Tell the people behind this reckless project to walk away and put their money somewhere else.
