On Sunday 8th November we premiered the new film, Forest Defenders - The Fight for Tasmania's native forests. An environmental documentary of the Bob Brown Foundation’s last 12 months of frontline direct action against Tasmania's voracious native forest logging industry.
We hope that our new film has inspired you to volunteer, support or take part in our coming summer of forest protests.
In 2021, we’re looking for people to host screenings of the film in their homes, at their local libraries, community halls and local pubs so we can share the story of our frontline activists far and wide.
It doesn’t matter how big or small – if you’re interested in helping us to spread the message, please register your interest below and our community campaigner will be in touch to help you make your event a reality.
At the Foundation we are committed to defending and protecting native forests with non-violent direct intervention
2020 has seen our most intense season of forest frontline action yet. We are the leaders in action for native forests in Tasmania and we share this effort with many many volunteer defenders. Hundreds of volunteers participated in the Sumac Ridge Blockade, the shut down of Ta Ann's veneer mill, held multi-day occupations and disruptions of logging operations in Que River, Pieman, Wentworth Hills and Mt Field areas.
