Dr. David Suzuki, The David Suzuki Foundation
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 ...

Nicola Bullard: Focus on the Global South
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 ...

Letter of Support from The Hendel Family
October 25, 2012 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. ...

Neil Tangri, Global Alliance of Incinerator Alternatives
Dear Friends at Global Justice Ecology Project, I think you know this well, but for the record, let me state that Global Justice Ecology Project’s work has been incredibly valuable to GAIA (the Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives) and to the larger global alliance of wastepickers. That's true in general, but in particular in the lead-up to and during COP 17. We have our own media team, and several of us are experienced in media handling, but there is simply no way we could have done what you did -- the "available for interviews" ...

Jen Soriano, Grassroots Global Justice Alliance
Dear GJEP, I wanted to send big heartfelt thanks to Global Justice Ecology Project for keeping Grassroots Global Justice Alliance so vigilantly in mind in all the excellent media work you did in Durban. And personally I want to thank you for being an incredible resource and support. It's all too rare that I encounter allies that I feel stand so squarely on their own feet and who run with their expertise in a way that directly benefits others - and you did that big time for me and for ...

Daphe Wysham, Director, Sustainable Energy and Economy Network
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 ...

Randy Hayes, Founder, Rainforest Action Network
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 ...
