In Real News Reports

Canada’s largest logging company, Montreal-based Resolute Forest Products, has brought a $300 million lawsuit against Greenpeace and Stand.earth under the United States Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Practices Act, or “RICO”. RICO was enacted in 1970 and was designed primarily to strengthen penalties against persons involved in organized crime. In this interview, I discuss the RICO lawsuit with Todd Paglia, the Executive Director of Stand.earth, who has himself been named as a defendant in the lawsuit. Todd explains that Resolute’s lawsuit is a thinly disguised attempt to intimidate critics of Resolute’s unsustainable logging practices. You can watch the interview here:
