'SAVE TASMANIA'S WILD FORESTS

'Save Tasmania’s Wild Forests - Forests are the Worlds’s Lungs' 12 pm, Saturday 13th, Australian High Commissions Strand, London, WC2B 4LA

Derek Wall, Green Party Principal Speaker, today urged people to attend this demonstration: "The proposed new pulp mill in Tasmania will consume 6 million tonness of ancient old growth forest and consume 26 to 40 billion litres of fresh water each year. It will emit 10 million tonnes of carbon dioxide annually and discharge 64, 000 tonnes of toxic effluent in to the sea, everyday. "Scientists have warned that planned logging in Tasmania’s north-east threatens animals and birds with local extinction. "Send a message to the Australian government and join me in making our opposition to this known, and supporting the Australian Greens, on Saturday. " ENDS
