DTE, September 12, 2013

"The people of Indonesia will be disappointed to hear that the European parliament has failed to agree any meaningful action to reduce Europe's demand for palm oil, which is driving deforestation and conflict in our country."

Nur Hidayati, WALHI/Friends of the Earth Indonesia, quoted in the Guardian, September 11th

Yesterday's Guardian article, European biofuels vote delivers 'desperately weak compromise', gives a good summary of the outcomes at the European Parliament yesterday.
