The skilled climbing artists on team Greenpeace (seriously, climbing stuff must be a requirement on the application) have done it again; scaling the White House-lookalike headquarters of KFC in Louisville, Kentucky and unfurling a banner decrying the company’s role in rainforest destruction.

“Greenpeace International research has revealed that KFC is sourcing paper for its packaging products from rainforests,” the company said in a new report. “This has been confirmed in China, the UK and Indonesia. Products found to contain rainforest fibre include cups, food boxes, French fries holders, napkins and the famous chicken buckets.”

In a press release, Rolf Skar, Greenpeace forest campaign director, said, “The decisions being made here at KFC HQ are fueling the destruction of some of the world’s last remaining rainforests, driving climate change and pushing the Sumatran tiger closer to extinction.”

In addition the banner, activists also attached themselves to the upper-portion of the pillars in protest. According to Wave3.com, police and firefighters are on the scene to remove the protestors.
