The tour for Colleen McCrory was co-ordinated by Stephan Röhl and Karen Wonders to urge upon the German Greens that British Columbia has an environmental crisis in need of global attention.

Upon request, we will send either an electronic PDF file for WaldAktion British Columbia - "We Have No Voice" or a printed programme by airmail post.

This second WaldAktion British Columbia follows the European tour we co-ordinated for the Canadian forest activist Ingmar Lee, "The Ongoing Destruction of British Columbia's Ancient Forests is an International Issue" in November/December, 2003.

Further actions are being planned and we welcome all suggestions to strengthen our global grass roots environmental network.
