we've got signatures, help us get to 1,000 by June 25, 2009
We the undersigned,
have gathered our signatures so that we can be heard by the Greek government about the matter of our greatest natural wealth, our forests. Over the past summers we have lost over 60 per cent of them due to fires (most of which caused by arson), so we urge you to try and put an end to this madness by protecting our beautiful forests in any way you can. Please let us be heard because this is very harmful for our environment since it makes global warming come a step closer to each and every one of us. That is the reason why this petition has been signed not only by Greek citizens but also from people from all over the globe who are very disturbed about what is happening every year in Greece. Please take under consideration our voices screaming for an end to this insanity!
Clearing up our precious trees, only to make way for new concrete houses is unacceptable. In a few years we will be left with nothing to pass on to our children, and this beautiful country that everyone from around the world comes to visit and explore will be nothing anymore. We, the great nation that inspired democracy and justice, the strong country that gave birth to the Olympic Games, will end up with nothing to hold dear anymore.
Once again, we urge you to act now and save as many trees we still have left. Thank you for taking the time to read our letter.
