Media Release 28 Jan 2016
"The Minister for Forests Paul Harriss is invader-in-chief at Lapoinya", Bob Brown said today.
"Harriss is in charge of the bulldozers and chainsaws which have invaded the previously peaceful Lapoinya Forest and he has done it against the wishes of the good citizens of Lapoinya.
"He is leading from behind: he refused to visit Lapoinya before over-ruling and overrunning the people's heartfelt pleas.
"This minister's behaviour has been rude and bloody-minded and is a loser for Tasmania in terms of jobs, the economy and the environment.
"Premier Hodgman should now overrule Harriss and call off this counter-productive operation at Lapoinya," Brown said.
