The protest of activists on July 12.


On July 12th, another protest took place in the vicinity of harvesters cutting down over 100-year-old forest stand in Browsk Forest District [division 302], in the UNESCO protection zone, where formally any commercial timber harvesting is banned. Harvesters were guarded by a few dozens of forest guards. After a few hours the machines left the Forest, escorted by the police and forest guards.

Forest guards from all over Poland arrived to guard the harvesters.

Scientists and Dutch journalists that came to the site called the Forest a ‘war zone.’
