Greenpeace blocks palm oil imports

Environmental activists held a protest at the Dutch port of Rotterdam to prevent palm oil being transported into the EU by the palm oil company IOI on Tuesday. The protest, which effectively blocked the road from the ship to the refinery for seven hours, was designed to highlight the destruction wrought by forest clearances in Indonesia to make way for palm oil plantations. Demands are growing in the EU for palm oil use to be regulated to prevent further environmental destruction in South East Asia.
