Global Day of Action with Friends of the Orangutans this Sunday!

In Malaysia and Indonesia rogue palm oil companies are destroying rainforests and the home of orangutans and other wildlife, violating the rights of Indigenous Peoples, rural communities and workers in order to produce Conflict Palm Oil, which is finding its way into hundreds of products lining Malaysian supermarket aisles. Orangutans and other wildlife are making their last stand for survival as their rainforest homes continue to be destroyed for palm oil plantations.

On Sunday May 18th, Friends of the Orangutans (FOTO) will take part in the Global Day of Action to Cut Conflict Palm Oil spearheaded by international group Rainforest Action Network. Along with people and activists in dozens of cities around the world we will demand PepsiCo Inc. to eliminate Conflict Palm Oil from its products.

We invite you to join us and be a part of this unique event to join others around the world to put pressure on PepsiCo in a photo action by displaying messsages through posters & a banner. Posters will be provided at the event. This action will send a strong signal to PepsiCo and the palm oil industry here people are starting to voice out about Conflict palm oil.

Time: 11.00 am – 12.00 pm

Venue: KLCC. Representatives of Friends of the Orangutans will be outside the entrance to Dewan Filharmonik Petronas (Petronas Philharmonic Hall) from 10.30 am. The entrance is situated between KLCC Tower 1 and Tower 2.

Call or SMS 0176102382 if you need assistance.
