Protect Crete's ancient olive trees from being fed to the fire. "These trees helped our parents put clothes on our backs and send us to university. It is thanks to these trees that Crete is what it is. Its cultural development is thanks to them.
Yet no one cares for these olive trees that have fed millions of people for thousands of years, that have been worshipped and adored."
In this recession the demand for firewood has rocketed. Hardship has forced people to cut them down to make a meagre living.
These trees are our legacy.
We, the undersigned, call on the Greek Government to save the monumental olive trees on Crete from destruction.
The Save Ancient Olive Trees in Crete petition to Greek Government was written by Mary Pink and is in the category Culture at GoPetition.
