In view of the massive environmental destruction in the eastern Polish Białowieża primeval forest, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage, GFAS calls for a UN blue helmet mission for environment. Nature conservation and strong institutions are a peace issue. Moreover, it is the task of the European civil society to intervene when governments of EU Member States deliberately ignore decisions of the European Court of Justice (ECJ), thus endangering democracy and the rule of law. This leads to the profound erosion of the European system of values and justice. More in the GFAS press release about Białowieża forest.
