Action for Lapoinya, Action for Earth

The Lapoinya forest is home to the world's largest freshwater crayfish and the beleaguered Tasmanian Devil.

Yet it will cost Tasmanian taxpayers up to $200,000 to clearfell this forest and burn it, wiping out its wildlife and breaking the hearts of the local community.

Bob visited Lapoinya to support the courageous locals who have been battling to save their forest. Once he saw the destruction being wrought on the forest he decided he could not turn away.

"That's right officer, I'm here for the forests, they're here to destroy it." Bob Brown

Bob and the three locals who have been arrested at Lapoinya could harsh penalties under Tasmania's draconian new anti-protest laws.
