We are writing to express support for Global Justice Ecology Project. We have been contributors for the last seven years because we trust the quality and integrity of their work and believe that it focuses on some of the most critical issues of our times.
GJEP is a small but powerful organization that is not afraid to take on the giants, whether in the GE tree industry or among climate change profiteers, and they get results. Time and again we have witnessed their uncompromising journalism and non-violent activism as they stand in defense of Nature and assert the truth. ...

21 March 2009 To whom it may concern. It is with great pleasure that I am writing to support the grant application of Global Justice Ecology Project for their important campaign work on climate justice, both through their New Voices on Climate Change Initiative and their work to end the devastating social, environmental and climate-related impacts of large-scale biofuel production. GJEP holistically addresses the climate crisis by both supporting the rights of indigenous and other communities impacted by climate change, and by organizing against some of the major threats to these communities ...

To Whom it May Concern, March, 2005 I am writing to support Global Justice Ecology Project's STOP Genetically Engineered Trees Campaign.GJEP's co-founders have been leaders in the effort to end the genetic engineering of trees since 1999.We have no control over the movement of insects, birds and mammals, wind and rain that carry pollen. Genetically engineered trees, with the potential to transfer pollen for hundreds of miles carrying genes for traits including insect resistance, herbicide resistance, sterility and reduced lignin, thus have the potential to wreak ecological havoc throughout ...

Received via email 7/5/05 To Whom It May Concern, Global Justice Ecology Project is mounting a global campaign to end the genetic engineering of trees. GE trees threaten to decimate native forests around the world if the engineered pollen from these trees escapes to contaminate native trees. Once this occurs, there is no way to stop it. GE tree plantations must not be developed. I hope you will support Global Justice Ecology Project's efforts to oppose the release of GE trees into the environment in commercial plantations.Latin America, in particular, is under grave threat from the development of ...

May 25, 2005 To Whom It May Concern, Global Justice Ecology Project's campaign to end the genetic engineering of trees around the world is fundamentally important and I strongly support it. Global Justice Ecology Project's founders Anne Petermann and Orin Langelle began building opposition to the development of genetically engineered (GE) trees in 1999. The Stop GE Trees Campaign, which they co-founded in 2004 along with Rainforest Action Network, Sierra Club, Dogwood Alliance and others, in mounting a powerful challenge to the corporations promoting genetically engineered trees.Genetically engineered trees pose a monumental threat to the world's remaning native ...
