Activists of Finland are blocking the road to the construction site of a massive new pulp mill in northern Finland.

If built the mill will cause devastating biodiversity loss, reduction of carbon stock, and destruction of reindeer pastures and the indigenous cultural heritage of the Sami.

Metsä Group and other major forestry corporations must scale down their production and reduce logging immediately.
