Derwent Valley and Central Highlands residents will hit the polls early this week, voting ‘1’ for the protection of Tasmania’s old-growth forests by delivering more than 1200 signed postcards to Premier David Bartlett, calling on him to end logging in the precious Upper Florentine Valley.
The postcards will be placed in a box marked with the words “Vote for the Florentine”, a symbolic gesture acknowledging the importance voters place on the protection of high conservation value forests.
