New track from Mick Harrington to raise $ for timber towns


FWCA latest news and post

Forest and Wood Communities Australia Executive Officer and renowned Australian singer-songwriter Mick Harrington has released a heartfelt anthem, “Cutting Down Our Town,” shedding light on the challenges faced by sustainable native timber towns in Victoria. This emotive song serves as a rallying cry for those with timber in their blood, fighting for the survival of their communities amidst the shutdown.

The poignant lyrics capture the essence of the ill-informed activist class, highlighting their lack of understanding of the hardships faced by country people. “Cutting Down Our Town” is more than just a song; it’s a powerful narrative amplifying the voices of timber communities, emphasizing the need for empathy and informed decision-making.

Mick Harrington, with a deep connection to the cause, pledges to direct all proceeds from the song towards his advocacy work for timber towns across Australia. Through his dedicated work with Forest and Wood Communities Australia, Mick aims to create awareness about the challenges these communities endure and champion their cause on a national scale.

The song is available on Mick Harrington’s Bandcamp page:(https://mickharrington.bandcamp.com/track/cutting-down-our-town)

“We’re standing up for the heart of our towns, for the generations with timber in their blood. ‘Cutting Down Our Town’ is not just a song; it’s a call to action. Let’s join forces to support these communities and ensure their voices are heard,” says Mick Harrington.
