A Decade of Forest Defence

For those of you in Tasmania, this weekend is a great time to celebrate forest activism, because the Huon Valley Environment Centre is turning ten! And to commemorate this milestone, they are have a festival down at Lonnavale. 

This volunteer run organisation has been a critical player in the forest campaign for the past ten years. Tirelessly defending the forests of the Huon Valley, this group have brought the beauty and the ongoing destruction of these forests to the attention of the world. They have led the charge in the fight to free the forests from the hands of Ta Ann. Recently Jenny Weber spokesperson for the group travelled to Japan to talk to customers buying Ta Ann’s wood made from our precious native forests. We’ll be hearing more from Jenny in her guest blog…coming soon!

Check out the details on their website: A Decade of Forest Defence



National ObserverTree Poster Extravaganza Week!

Okay, I’ve been up here for over four weeks now. Still no sign of a conservartion agreement that will protect this forest, and the loggers are due back on January 16th. We need to amp up the pressure and spread the word as much as possible. It’s been going all around facebook, which is great. Now it’s time to take it to the streets. Please get on board and help!

Just follow these easy steps:

1. Choose your method of information dissmention.

a)  Black and white poster- put it up everywhere you can

b) Letter box drop leaflet – just let us know which areas so there isn’t overlap.

c) Hand out flyers on the street – pick any place where there’s people and give them out

d) Colour poster – contact us and we’ll post you copies of the colour poster that you can put up in places like cafes, shops, community notice boards etc.

2. Print out the relevent flyer or poster below. For colour posters, or if you have difficulty accessing a printer – send us an email and we can post some to you: P.s: Make sure printing is done on recyled paper 😉

3. Get out on the streets – poster, flyer, letter-box drop till you drop!!

In addition to the poster explosion… get your thinking caps on for more ways that we can get the word out there to the masses. Please let us know if you come up with any ideas -we’d love to hear from you.
