A hall full of people turned out at the Hobart Town Hall for the Public Meeting held to outline concerns about the Tasmanian Government’s plans to weaken wilderness protection in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, and encourage people to have their say. 

Speakers were World Heritage Expert Jamie Kirkpatrick, Environmentalist Bob Brown, Champion Orienteer & Runner Hanny Allston, and Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre’s Ruth Langford.

    These public meetings are very important to the context of inclusion of the population in politics in general. Curso Trader Esportivo da Haten

    New package is looking good … but where is the story and or video to accompany these great photos? What did these good people say? I’m not a Tasmanian so not even sure what the issue is.
