If you are marching in the Pulp Mill Protests
  • expect us not to listen to you,
  • to be ignore,
  • your concerns dismissed as scare mungering,
  • and generally not considered in any discission made on Gunns Behalf.
  • Unless it is a Federal Election Year and the Polls are bad,

An addition to this you as a protestor can expect to be:

  • Treated like a moron
Protestors have been fighting for years in an attempt to stop logging of old growth forests.

The State Government of Tasmania has decided they will no longer cover the cost of removing Protestors from these areas, which will allow the Gunns the logging company free reign.
Premiere Paul Lennon is attempting to bann Forestry Protestors, to make Protesting illegal.
They have been trying to sueing a protestor, Known as the The Weld Valley Angel and the Forest Angel, they wish to her to pay $2000 part of the cost of Crane, which was used to remove her from a pole. This young girl dressed as a Forest Angel sat on the pole did not hurt anyone, did not speak, did not move. She just sat there frozen and would not come down.
For this she is being sued by the State Government, Gunns Limited and another company for costs and income lost because she was up a pole.
