Forest Defenders Scale Loading Crane to Halt Shipment of Cut Logs in Tazmania, 6 arrested

Six conservationists were arrested today at Hobart wharf, after halting loading of logging ship bound for Malaysia for 8 hours. The ship was loaded with veneer sourced from high conservation value forests in Tasmania,” said Jenny Weber, Huon Valley Environment Centre.

“2 protestors who had scaled a loading crane on the ship were dramatically arrested after Tasmanian Police were forced to bring in their own crane to remove them,” said Ms Weber

“Today’s blockade by forest defenders was to highlight Ta Ann’s poor environment record here in Tasmania and in its home state of Sarawak,” said Ms Weber.
