Bob visit to Leard State Forest in June 2014

Dear Friends,

On the way south from our two months in  Queensland, Paul and I called in this week at the Leard State Forest east of Narrabri in New South Wales. The lady in the cafe asked me, meaningfully, if I had seen 'those people' protesting against the destruction of this forest for coal mines. "No," I replied, "but have you seen the destroyed forests?" She said no more.
