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.
Thankyou to all our supporters who put their hands up to host a screening of Forest Defenders in their local community. We have hosted more than 20 screenings, reaching more than 800 audience members across the country.
We will be wrapping up our community screening program for 2021, and will be undertaking no new events. However, we still have a number of screenings yet to happen in places like Port Macquarie, Byron Bay, Brisbane and Thirroul. Please keep your eyes peeled on our events page for upcoming screenings, as well as future opportunities to host events in collaboration with the Foundation.
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.
