TCFA Condemns Further Forestry Protests

"This illegal activity by environmental activists is damaging rural communities at a time when the global credit crunch is really biting hard" according to Ferdie Kroon, TFCA's Chief Executive Officer.

"It just goes to show the lack of respect that these illegal people have for the law and for hard working rural people", said Mr Kroon. "Even the Greens should be condemning this sort of damaging activity but instead they just sit back in support and watch", commented Mr Kroon. This is certainly a clear indication of their lack of respect for rural communities.
Mr Kroon further commented that it was ironic that we currently have Workplace Safety Week, yet nothing is being done to address the unsafe practices of illegal protestors. "These people place themselves into circumstances where equipment is damaged, lives are threatened and emergency services personnel are stopped from doing their work" said Mr Kroon.
TFCA continues to call upon the State Government for strong leadership and urgent action in this area. It seems as if we have two classes of citizens in Tasmania, those that obey the law and those that don't. "Illegal protestors are those that ignore the law and we have a State Government that is either powerless or unwilling to take decisive action" commented Mr Kroon. What is needed is clear and unambiguous legislation that allows for recovery of costs, provides for a safe workplace and suitably punishes offenders. "This legislation needs to be robust enough to catch those that fund this illegal protest activity" said Mr Kroon.

"In simple terms, Bob Brown and Tim Morris obviously believe it is alright for protestors to act unlawfully but not okay for harvesters to defend themselves and their lawful right to work" commented Ferdie Kroon, TFCA's Chief Executive Officer. Read More

"In simple terms, Bob Brown and Tim Morris obviously believe it is alright for protestors to act unlawfully but not okay for harvesters to defend themselves and their lawful right to work" commented Ferdie Kroon, TFCA's Chief Executive Officer.

We now have lawmakers creating a circumstance where the law only applies to some and not others, thus creating a dangerous distinction and even division within the community. Such an arrangement potentially jeopardises all lawful working arrangements and allows for Green and Wilderness Society protestors to unlawfully target any business they simply don't like.
What Bob and Tim should be doing is directing their protestors to cease unlawful action immediately. "Such a positive move would take the heat out of the debate and ensure law and order for all is maintained", said Mr Kroon. Added to this is the fact that Government can quickly step in and ensure that the laws apply evenly to everyone.
"Let us also not forget that peaceful protesting is law abiding action, not activities that result in financial loss and place lives in jeopardy", according to Mr Kroon. Unlawful protest activity causes hardship and pain, both physical and psychological.
Decisions about areas to harvest are also not made by contractors. Validly prepared Forest Practices Plans are honoured and Government policy is followed by the planners. "There are better ways to get your message across without causing financial hardship and safety breaches" commented Ferdie Kroon.
