If you missed it, here is the complete virtual rally to watch:
Share this short film to your online networks:
Make a poster, or use ours, and post a photo of you with the poster and the hashtag #SaveTassiesForests
Donate, at a 'real world' rally we would pass the buckets around to help cover the costs of the event and the continuing campaign.
Any donation you can toss in the 'online bucket' will be a huge help to keep this campaign going strong in these incredibly challenging times.
On Facebook tag @Peter Gutwein in the post, and ‘check in’ to the Department of Premier and Cabinet.
Email and call Peter Gutwein asking him to save Tassies forests, and not to log them.
Email and call local and national media informing them about the threat to Tasmania’s forests.

Read the document "The lowdown on the Tasmanian Government’s plan to log converted nature reserves" to get all the facts.
Take a look at these maps of the FPPFs (also including the PTPZ), plus some maps of the same area overlaid over Hobart, Melbourne and Sydney. Images can be found here:
The Independent Verification Group assessment of the 572,000 hectares of high conservation value forests nominated for protection included the 356 000 hectares of forests the government is now proposing to make available for logging.
The IVG assessment was a highly significant study that identified significant conservation values that would make a substantial contribution to the National Reserve System. The areas that were meant to be protected (and hitherto deferred from logging) are now vulnerable to logging despite an agreement by both state and federal governments and all IVG signatories that they would be bound by the IVG outcome.
