Shoot: Action against Illegal Timber in Scheveningen

GP01LRS
Greenpeace activists mark 'wrong wood' in the harbor of Scheveningen, near the Hague with (environment friendly) blood red paint. The Dutch government is replacing the old mooring-masts and quayside bars of the second inner harbor of Scheveningen with timber from Cameroon, Africa. In Cameroon the rain forest is rapidly destroyed by commercial and illegal logging. The supplier of the timber used in Scheveningen is Dutch company Reef. Reef is one of the three logging companies of which Greenpeace has proven they are guilty of illegal logging in Cameroon. Greenpeace wants the harbor to be finished with sustainable timber.
Research done by Greenpeace shows at least 20 governmental projects in the Netherlands where illegal timber is being used. The three Dutch companies specialized in timber for ground engineering Wijma, Reef and CIBEC are all guilty of illegal logging. The Dutch government is an important customer of these companies and thus is in great risk of using illegal timber.
