Minister Chuck Porter,
I am Sasha Fillmore, I am 14 years old. My brother Jacob Fillmore has been protesting for almost 4 months. He camped in a tent in the middle of winter. He has had rallies, petitions and he has even gone on a hunger strike for 23 days. If that isn’t enough to get your attention, I’d like to know what would.
CLEAR CUTTING NEEDS TO STOP
Not only is it bad for the air and soil quality, it also destroys ecosystems. Forests are actually very important (if you didn’t know). They provide oxygen for us to BREATHE. But also carbon sinks, soil retention, animal habitats, water filtration, natural cooling, and the list of benefits could go on.
I’m not old enough to vote, but I am concerned for my future if no change is made.
Our government doesn’t see forests for trees. They see it as an opportunity to make money. That needs to change.
DECLARE A MORATORIUM ON CLEAR CUTTING NOW!
