Get creative for this Friday’s visual petition!
If you need some inspiration for getting your banners and signs ready for this Friday. Check out all the amazing images from our last Global 24 Hours of Action for Tasmania’s Forests! This was back in February this year. I’d been in the tree for just a few months by then. And had a great show of support with over 70 actions across 15 countries.

Now I have been at the top of the tree for a year, and the protection of these forests is more urgent than ever! I hope you will all get on board to support me this Friday when Observer Tree turns one! Make a sign or banner about why you want to see the forest protected. A suggested message is “[insert name of town/ group] stands with Miranda. World Heritage forest protection now.” Or get creative with your own message. Take a photo with you, your sign and as many people as you can gather. Upload your photo on Friday to Twitter with the hashtag #istandwithmiranda and post to Facebook www.facebook.com/ObserverTree. If you don’t use Facebook or Twitter – never fear – you can email directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post it for you!
This show of support will generate lots of online buzz about Observer Tree and be a strong show of global support for Observer Tree. Plus, we will collect all these images as a “visual petition” to show the government and the companies involved in the forest destruction that the world wants to see these globally signficant forests protected for the future. I can’t wait to see your photos!!
