The trashing around Cradle

What the fuck is going on with the landscapes around Cradle Mountain?

Plantations, landclearing, monocultures all on the edge of the World Heritage Area.

It’s extremely disturbing driving through there and seeing such relentless forestry activity.

Stop in at the Mole Creek Pub, and the locals are cottoned onto this destructive practice all too well and talk of rapacious companies, contractors that think its shit but can’t talk for fear of losing job, international markets demanding something more ethical and how it works so much better in NZ.

I despair when our Heritage Jewel is bastardised.

We can’t even look after what we’ve got – so how on earth can we credit Labor with doing good things.

It’s all new, new, new with Barto and his lot. Can’t look after what we’ve got.

This will be Tasmania’s legacy.
