Indonesia Police: Investigate & Prosecute destroyers of Tripa!

Your support has made our previous petition at www.change.org/saveTripa a historical success! But with Tripa still being burned, cleared, destroyed and the Sumatran Orangutan still being pushed closer to extintion, we need to urgently double our efforts and keep up the pressure and action!

The Governor of Aceh has made history by finally revoked the license of one of the illegally operating companies thanks to the pressure generated by our first petitions. But with 5 more companies still destroying protected area inside Tripa, the fight has only just begun!

There are still companies with breaking the law in Tripa continuing to clear protected forests and driving the local Sumatran Orangutan population closer to extinction, urgent action is required to save Tripa.

The national police needs to investigate and prosecute law-breakers, namely those who are breaking National Spatial Planning law 26/2007 Government Regulation 26/2008 which protects the 2.7 million hectare Leuser Ecosystem, home to critically endangered Orangutans, and also Sumantra Tigers, Elephants, Rhinos and countless other iconic species.

Community members filed a police report in November, now with the legal precedent of the first permit being revoked, it's the perfect time for the National Police to take action and bring this next case to the courts.

Together, we can take this next step, help the community, demand the police uphold Indonesian law, save Tripa, and set a huge precedent for the protection of ALL of Indonesian forests.
