Media Release: Man charged after attack on Tarkine forest defender

A man has been charged in relation to the attack on Tarkine defenders on 21 February 2020.

Three Tarkine rainforest defenders were driving on a public road near our Sumac Ridge blockade when the man deliberately rammed their vehicle.

Tasmania Police have informed us that investigations are ongoing and further charges may be laid against the man who was charged yesterday.

We believe this same man may have been involved in several incidents of intimidation against forest defenders at our peaceful Sumac rainforest blockade and this information has been shared with police.
