This evening a tree-sitter has been arrested defending primordial rainforests of takyana / Tarkine from looming logging. The tree-sitter was in the canopy of an ancient tree for 24 hours today as the Tasmanian government sent in the bulldozers and chainsaws.
Atalaya Ferrari was charged with trespass and wilfully obstructing a police officer and was released tonight.
"We are grateful to the brave defenders who have stood on the front line today, and to all our supporters of the campaign. Because of them, no tree will fall unfought," said takayna / Tarkine Campaigner Scott Jordan.
