Media Release 11 May 2012 - Cutting Edge Forest Protest on Hobart’s waterfront last night
Huon Valley Environment Centre last night participated in a peaceful action on the Hobart waterfront. Activists used a projector to place images and messages about Ta Ann on the side of a vessel that was in port loading veneer.
Huon Valley Environment Centre has today released vision and images of last night’s action, and will upload the film to their online campaign centres.
“In a cutting edge action, Huon Valley Environment Centre projected messages saying ‘Stop Selling Forest Destruction’, and images of logging areas that Ta Ann has received timber from,” Huon Valley Environment Centre’s Jenny Weber said.
“Last night’s innovative projected images will be used online to continue to expose the practices of this Malaysian logging company and the loss of forests in Tasmania to feed their contract,” Jenny Weber said.
“Huon Valley Environment Centre’s campaign is exposing that the ongoing logging of independently verified forests with world heritage values are being logged to feed Ta Ann. And the company continues to sell their timber from Tasmania as eco-friendly,” Jenny Weber said.
