Victoria’s forestry families received peace of mind yesterday when VicForests won an appeal to overturn the May 2020 Federal Court decision which affected 66 logging coupes in the Central Highlands.
The damage attributable to misinformation spread about forestry has been immense. Both in terms of industry livelihoods lost and rural lives unfairly over-turned by political decisions forced by misguided public sentiment.
Forest & Wood Communities Australia has applauded the Federal Court’s decision to throw out the media stunt court case staged by the Bob Brown Foundation in Tasmania.
Forest & Wood Communities Australia has formally requested prosecutions of the Bob Brown Foundation by the work safety regulator, WorkSafe Tasmania.
