Your comments on the arrest and deportation of Greenpeace activists, who staged a protest against deforestation by unfurling a huge banners in one of Riau's forests.
Those Riau authorities must be delusional if they think that by arresting and deporting Greenpeace activists the latter will stop trying to uncover what is really going on in Riau, i.e. logging at an alarming rate, most of which is illegal.
I watch with horror from Europe as the selfish greed of land barons and their political allies devastate thousands of years' worth of the world's rainforests in a decade.
Those people will be have money today but they will die in the next 30 years, meanwhile the world and everything living in it is poorer as a result now and forever.
Greenpeace has managed to get global corporations in the meat food-chain and leather producers to boycott products sourced from ex-rainforest land in South America.
I really support their efforts to show the world how a few men are plundering the natural resources of Indonesia for short-term gain at the expense of everybody else who lives in Indonesia both now and in the future.
Long Live Greenpeace and people who respect that we are part of nature and the world as a whole.
The fact that the deforestation of Riau is incredibly devastating and illegal logging involving local authorities is openly and widely practiced is no secret. The situation has gone from bad to worse.
The presence of Greenpeace in Riau was designed to draw the world's attention to a "situation" that contributes to global warming. This "situation" needs to be taken care of seriously, aggressively and lawfully to prevent catastrophic illegal logging committed by so called cukong (timber merchants). Execute those who are responsible with no mercy. Protect our forests.
Save our forests from destruction. It's akin to investing in our kids' future. Salute to Greenpeace!
Greenpeace is an organization much like the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK). They are committed to exposing criminal and immoral activities and as such should be eradicated. The pressure is on and the mafioso will eventually crumble. Good riddance.
Although Greenpeace activists are extremists to the point of being irresponsible, and at times break the law, they provide necessary input for a debate with those who would totally destroy our environment for profit (often at the expense of the law themselves).
Between the two extremes we must decide the truth and find balance. But more importantly the arrest of Greenpeace activists is a breach of human rights and goes against all the tenants of democracy.
This in itself may tell us about the position that Riau authorities are taking.
Riau authorities should arrest people who destroy our forest. What Greenpeace did was an attempt to protect our forests.
We have to support them and do something to protect our only Earth, please!
I think it's a disgrace that people are deported for trying to protect Indonesia's forests while those who are illegally destroying it keep on making hundreds of millions of dollars.
They ensure access to land owned by local communities through corruption and political connections, destroy the natural environment, people's livelihoods and then sit in Singapore waiting for their bank accounts to grow.
President Yudhoyono should move swiftly to show things in Indonesia are different from the past.
Most Indonesians try hard to save their forests. But the greedy and unscrupulous ones do just the opposite. Welcome aboard Greenpeace!
I think Greenpeace is doing very well in its campaign to stop deforestation. They are right to try and stop this environmental crime.
I think that there are more conspiracies behind all of this. Those climate criminals just don't know what they're doing, they are driving us, humankind, to extinction by letting deforestation go on!
They just don't get it! Or they just don't care! Save our mother Earth!
The rainforest needs to be saved for the sake of people, animals and the climate - in Indonesia and elsewhere. While richer countries need to help make it happen, the Indonesian authorities need to accommodate it. Even considering deporting peaceful Greenpeace protesters - against the wishes of local Riau people - does not show a real commitment to face the challenges ahead.
Many people find the deforestation of Riau intolerable. We can say that this is the epicenter of the world's climate destruction. Climate change is a global problem, not just a national problem.
That is why people around the world should do something to solve this problem. They represent Earth's voice. Earth doesn't have a state. Earth belongs to everyone.
Greenpeace is the hero of fighting climate crime. Arresting them means covering environmental crime with another crime. Who are you people? The authorities don't deserve to live in this only Earth.
We only have one Earth. Keep it; conserve it! Don't destroy it just for money.
We must support these activists in their peaceful struggle against the bosses (mafiosi) who in fact run Indonesia. The big bosses do not care for the natural world, they are solely interested in making more money.
