Media Release: Two forest defenders arrested in Tasmanian protest

Two people were arrested today in a Tasmanian forest protest at Wentworth Hills on the Central Plateau.

“Old growth logging destruction across Tasmania is heating the planet and removing critical wildlife habitat from the landscape. The Wentworth Hills region has Tasmania's largest-scale logging destruction. More than 2770 hectares of extensive eucalyptus native forests are scheduled to be destroyed over the next two years on the Tasmanian Central Plateau,” Bob Brown Foundation’s Jenny Weber said.

Today's arrests follow three arrests yesterday including climate activist Marco Bellemo who was held in remand overnight and released today after pleading guilty to trespass.
