They order Greenpeace activists, who have halted the 'Harbour Gemini' from loading it's cargo of illegally felled trees, and occupied it for 3 days, to remove banners and vacate the ship immediately. These forests are being felled by Turama Forest Industries - a group company of Malaysian logging giant Rimbunan Hijau. In 1995, the Papua New Guinea government granted 1.7 million hectares as a logging ‘extension’ to Turama Forest Industries – the extension was almost 10 times bigger than the original concession. The timber permit for this new concession, called Turama Extension is valid for 35 years (until 2030).

Forests for Climate (FFC) is Greenpeace’s landmark proposal for an international mechanism to fund sustainable and lasting reductions of emissions from tropical deforestation in participating countries in order to meet commitments for the second phase of the Kyoto Protocol.Greenpeace is calling on the Indonesian government to implement an immediate moratorium on all forest conversion, including expansion of oil palm plantations, industrial logging, and other drivers of deforestation.
