In Romania, illegal logging kills more than just trees

Forest rangers being murdered because they are trying to protect trees. Amazonia is not the only place where this happens… It happens in Europe too.

    When it will stop The earth is changing Soon or later illegal loggers will realize it's the punishment or consequences It must be warned and stop immediately I'm tired of warning and telling it because we cannot live longer Where's the beauty of nature you should appreciate

    Acá en Argentina, está pasando lo mismo. Estoy defendiendo una parte de la Reserva Hídrica Recreativa Municipal Los Quebrachitos. Vivo en la Reserva junto a mis dos hijas menores de edad, no dejo desmontar, hago denuncias y estoy siendo amenazada de muerte, si no salgo de mí casa. Pido ayuda. Si alguien conoce a un organismo que pueda ayudarme por favor!!

    It s a big problem in Romania with deforestation. We are losing 3 football fields every hour. The wood is exported illegally in Austria. The main culprit is an austrian logging company called Holzschwein hoffer industry. They have the support of Romanian politicians. And there are Romanian companies that are logging illegally belonging to Romanian politicians or to their close relatives. Many heavy floods, and land slides occured in the last 10 years in Romania because of the savage deforestation. The nature is taking its revenge on the common people, not on the gready bastards that are getting rich and fat. And the rangers are attacked more and more these days. There are hundreds of them getting beaten by those "animals" that are cutting down our forests. 6 rangers were killed in the last 3 years. I wonder if the children of the poachers and politicians can breathe carbon dioxide? It seems they don't like oxigen anymore.
