Greenpeace lockdown at AbitibtiBowater Headquarters - Activists continue their 24 hour protest



    MONTREAL, Sept. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - Three Greenpeace activists continue
chain themselves to the front doors of AbitibiBowater headquarters after
almost 24 hours. AbitibiBowater is the largest logging company in Canada. The
activists took over the company's front entrance to protest the ongoing
destruction of some of the last remaining intact Boreal forest.
    This act of civil disobedience is part of the ongoing campaign led by
Greenpeace to transform the logging practices in the Boreal Forests of Quebec
and Ontario, launched over one year ago. Greenpeace is trying to bring an end
to the destruction in the Boreal Forest as intact forests in particular play
an essential role in maintaining biodiversity, mitigating global climate
change and protecting threatened and endangered species such as the woodland
caribou.
