Forêt de Kua : Un parti écologiste écrit au Président du Faso

Burkina Faso’s Rassemblement Des Ecologistes du Burkina Faso. RDEBF eloquently calls on the President to protect the important Kua Forest from development financed by Chinese investment - “The RDEBF, aware of the important role of forests in the preservation of the health of populations and their well-being, remains convinced that the protection of the environment is the only pledge of development of our dear country. Nature does not belong to any one person, we all have the duty to protect it to leave it beautiful, rich and diversified for future generations. Thus we appeal to your high sense of collective well-being and in accordance with the vision you have given us to see to put an end to this ecological drift. Your Excellency, your responsibility is highly committed to handling this issue and will be a strong signal to the younger generation. And as the writer and statesman Vaclav Havel so aptly said, "When it comes to responsibility, the most interesting thing is that we wear it wherever we are. It means that it belongs to us, that we must face it, here and now ... ". In this sense, Excellency, this interpellation remains the most peaceful form that we ecologists, lovers and environmentalists have found to draw your attention to the need to act to save this forest. However, in case of unsatisfaction, we will be forced to join other forms of demands alongside other social forces so that the Kua forest regains its peace.”
