Save Sweden's forests

To Swedish Environment Minister Lena Ek:

As concerned citizens, we call upon you to immediately declare Ojnareskogen and surrounding areas an EU protected nature area. This unique forest is threatened with destruction to make way for a massive limestone mine. You have a responsibility to protect these ancient trees, and we urge you to act immediately and decisively to save Ojnareskogen.

Right now, mining company Nordkalk is trying to flatten a unique forest on Gotland -- and only the Swedish Environment Minister can save this forest for good.

Public pressure forced the logging company hired to wreck this pristine site to pull out, and Naturvårdsverket (the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency) is mounting a legal challenge to save the trees. But the courts have refused to step in and stop the mining project while they decide whether to accept the case -- and it's only a matter of time before the logging begins again.

Environment Minister Lena Ek can immediately declare this beautiful forest a protected nature zone -- sign the petition to demand she acts now, then forward this email to everyone. When we reach 30,000 signatures, Avaaz will deliver our call to her in Stockholm.
