HELP PROTECT OUR RIVER TO PROTECT OUR COMMUNITY
What links ecocide and murder in Brazil to the imminent death of the River Wye is the Cargill-Avara soya supply-chain.
In Brazil, massive expansion of the soya-farms which supply Cargill-Avara is driven by requirements of US-based behemoth Cargill and other agri-giants.
Farm expansion is a major cause of deforestation across Brazil which has brought the vital Amazon/Cerrado ecosystem to a tipping point, and also causes the oppression and murder of indigenous people who have always been guardians of those forests.
The devastating effects of deforestation in Brazil upon humanity, indigenous peoples and ecosystems have been publicly-known for decades. Yet Cargill-Avara has continued to ruthlessly exploit this crucially important part of the globe.
In Herefordshire/Powys, the excrement from millions of soya-fed poultry, destined for Cargill-Avara processing, has brought the vital River Wye to the point of dying, threatening businesses and our crucial tourist industry - with the potential loss of tens of thousands of jobs.
In their own home country, Cargill has been implicated from at least 2002 in phosphate pollution of the USA Illinois River, caused by poultry operations. They therefore had reason to know all about the risks their massive expansion of poultry here in Herefordshire and Powys from 2013 would pose to the River Wye. Nevertheless they chose to simply exploit regulatory loopholes and laxity caused by deregulation.
Livestock operations in the catchment, principally intensive poultry, are now held to be the cause of as much as 80% of the pollutants entering our River Wye.
Time has run out for this sort of corporate misbehaviour as we are already at a global ‘code red for humanity’ (Guterres/Biden), facing imminent destruction of the Amazonia carbon-sink and death of the River Wye.

You may amend this email above and personalise it as you wish.
If you press the SEND EMAIL button above, we will send a single email to Andrew Dawkins from you at his Avara Foods email address. Mr Dawkins is CEO of Avara foods - (Jointly owned by Cargill and Faccenda Foods) - but he is also listed as being both MD of Faccenda Foods, Supply Chain Director of Faccenda Foods, and Supply Chain Manager of Cargill.
The email will also copy-in the Three Conservative MPs who represent us in Herefordshire and Powys: Sir Bill Wiggin, Jesse Norman and Fay Jones, because they need to be taking a lead in controlling this unacceptable face of Global Capitalism and in fixing the regulatory loopholes that Cagill-Avara have exploited, and which their Conservative Government Government have created and permitted.
