Dear Friends of Lapoinya,
Yes, the campaign is still running and Forestry Tasmania have given no indication that they are going to spare this beautiful forest. In fact, FT believe they have addressed all the serious environmental issues raised (they have not, of course) while Annells and Harris continue to ignore all opposition to their proposed destruction.
We need more pressure than ever on our State Government and Forestry Tasmania to stop this insanity, especially as forest ‘waste’ that would be burned under the guise of ‘renewable energy’ will inevitably include timber damaged during clear-felling.
Please note the following:
