Vica Bayley Training workshops on peaceful protest action

The Wilderness Society will today announce details of their contribution to a new stage in the campaign to stop the proposed Tamar Valley pulp mill going ahead, following growing numbers of people registering to take part in peaceful protest action. The Wilderness Society has collected a database of over 6500 names of people who have pledged their commitment to participate in peaceful community protest. Planned workshops are designed to empower the community to stand up for their future and people will be trained in the important philosophies and skills of peaceful community protest. Peaceful protestors are being mobilised in Tasmania and in other parts of Australia and The Wilderness Society will today also detail how it will work with the community to peacefully protest the pulp mill if final approval for its construction is given. As the pulp mill is not fully approved by the federal government and does not yet have finance, peaceful protests will continue to target the ANZ bank and federal politicians.

When: Monday, 11th February. 1pm. Where: Salamanca Inn, 10 Gladstone St, Hobart
