A Kermit moment – it ain’t easy being green’ – was how Bob Brown described today’s adverse judgement by the Federal Court.
“But our campaign for the forests will simply get bigger,” Bob Brown said.
“We are considering both an appeal to the High Court and other legal action but have many quivers to our campaign bow. The court of public opinion is with us on ending native forest logging in Tasmania and all of Australia,”
“Meantime our injunctive action has given four months protection to the last few hundred Swift Parrots in their feeding and breeding season,” Brown said.
“There is a blitz going on in Tasmania’s forests and it’s in the hands of the Australian and Tasmanian government. The Great Forest Case is just one tactic in a vast array of tactics that we use from the frontline, to the markets, to lobbying the government,” Bob Brown Foundation’s Campaign Manager Jenny Weber said.
“This is one setback, but every single day in the forests we are setback by the logging of Tasmania’s native forests and endangered species lose in this extinction crisis,” Jenny Weber said.
“Bob Brown Foundation is reinvigorated to keep fighting for native forests, it’s time for all native forests across Australia to be protected,” Jenny Weber said.
