Thank You.
That is what this post is all about. Simply: Thank You.

Cargill_Timeline_v1.pngAfter seven long years of campaigning against Cargill — the biggest privately held corporation in the US – we have seen a groundbreaking commitment from them along with a seismic shift in the palm oil sector to protect disappearing rainforests and to keep massive amounts of carbon in the ground and out of the atmosphere.

To mark this victory, our staff has compiled this photographic timeline of this wide-ranging campaign to keep Conflict Palm Oil out of our food and to protect our forests and the communities and wildlife that depend on them.

Of course, this fight is by no means over. But as the executive director of Rainforest Action Network, I want you to know that your support on this issue is directly responsible for this progress. Your support – from your emails, your signatures, your phone calls, your social media action and your donations to your presence at RAN nonviolent direct actions such as occupying Cargill headquarters, marching in the streets, and creating massive public demonstrations to bring the message directly to Cargill – has made this possible.

And as we enter into this season of gratitude and giving, everyone here at RAN would like to extend our deepest thanks to all of you for your support.

So, again: Thank You.
