EMILY'S LETTER TO THE PM - Events Tasmania Feedback (Emily is 13 years old).
"...... I am only a young person, but hopefully, through this letter, you have felt how I and many others feel and especially express our feelings to you about this inhumane, savage, and violent act."
FROM SIMON - Events Tasmania Feedback
" Brillaint site - the fact that the pollies are reacting means that your message is obviously working. Keep up the good work!
As visitors to the wilderness areas on a number of occasions for my holidays, my family has added tens of thousands of dollars to the Tassie economy. Not any more! Until the government stops these absurd practices, I won't be coming back! "

And there is also usually a pile of whole plantation logs for export to Korea. That’s why the Burnie wharf epitomises both the absurdity and the obscenity of Tasmanian forestry policies. It symbolises our wasted resources and opportunities. We export our oldgrowth forests as woodchips. We replace our native forests with plantations. We export our plantations as whole logs.
