Back to Protect Native Forests for Climate Security

ACTION ALERT: JOIN US ON APRIL 15 2013

It's the next wave of destruction for our native
forests. The forestry and energy
industries are now poised to feed our forests into
furnaces to produce electricity, convert them into bio-fuels, and into pellets
for export.  This will mean more
destruction of forests and their wildlife, and release massive amounts of
carbon into the atmosphere. Industry calls this 'renewable energy'.  It wants
the government to help pay for it in the form of 'renewable energy
certificates' and other subsidies at the community's expense. 

Join us on April 15 in Melbourne or for the International Day of Action

Help show the energy industry and energy retailers, the forestry industry and governments
that we will not stand by while our

precious forests must be protected for
wildlife, climate, water and the air we breathe, not trashed for
electricity or fuel.
