The No REDD In Africa Network hails the legacy of "A Lion among Men" Wally Menne, a visionary and founder of our struggle against carbon colonialism.

If REDD-style schemes are allowed to be imposed on African forestland, fields and grasslands, it could mean the economic subjugation of the entire continent... REDD and CDM schemes will probably be no more than a form of re-colonisation, and the final drive to commodify the remaining spaces of Africa left in indigenous hands after the first round of formal colonialism. We must stand united in resisting the REDD+ Trojan Horse!
