Please check the following link to see how palm oil and forest destruction doesn't just kill species it leads to their prolonged abuse. A lot of vegan products have palm oil included but this cannot be consistent with the vegan rejection of cruelty.
PLEASE BOYCOTT PALM OIL AND BIOFUELS, you will see from the narrative and relatively mild pictures below why this is an ANIMAL RIGHTS issue not just an eco issue. I learned from a fellow campaigner that these gentle creatures are subject to unspeakable brutality and have unbelievably be abused sexually, chained to beds as prostitutes, used as animal boxing matches as well as being kept on piles of trash. Those who are not captured receive a bullet to the head and the infants used as pets. Please check out the consumer section(3rd link) which tells you whether your pound is supporting this evil trade.
www.naturealert.org does a good blog as well. Palm oil is often sold as sustainable, unfortunately there is no such thing.
Many thanks for your attention
