"It's just boiled over in absolute frustration," Mr Kroon said.

"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.
