Back to Save the Mumbulla and Five Forests Koalas from logging

Millions pledged to loggers: both major parties sell out the forests and their wildlife for loggers votes

Millions pledged to loggers: both major parties sell out the forests and their wildlife for loggers' votes.
Yesterday the Liberal Party promised upwards of $42 million for the woodchipping and logging industries, including direct cash payments of $20 million to logging contractors.
Today (without providing for it in their official election costings), Labor was pannicked into promising to match the $20million.
This gift of cash from the taxpayer to loggers is totally unjustified and unjustifiable. Markets for Australia's woodchips are drying up because paper manufacturers are adopting higher environmental standards. Both major parties believe in the free market, except when it comes to propping up this destructive industry.
The Greens are only one party that will save Australia's forests and give hope fore the survival of the koalas. Please remember this when you vote tomorrow
