Activists Occupy Cargill HQ, Shutting Down Business for Cutting Down Rainforest

Wayzata--(press release from Rainforest Action Network)--In the wake of a damning report linking Cargill to the destruction of Indonesia’s rainforests, activists with Rainforest Action Network occupied the suburban Minneapolis executive offices of the nation’s largest private agribusiness company today. Playing a loud recording of chainsaws cutting down rainforests and holding signs reading “This is the sound of your supply chain,” and “Mr. Page: Rainforest Destruction Stops with You,” five activists locked themselves to the staircase of the Lake Office, blocking the entrance to the company’s executive offices for over two hours. All five activists were arrested.
