South Sister St. Marys, Tasmania

South Sister

Reasons not to log Coupe NI 114A

Forestry Tasmania (FT) has failed to respond and satisfactorily answer many questions and issues raised by the St Marys' community in relation to the logging of Coupe NI 114A, South Sister.

It has therefore become necessary to take legal action against FT in relation to the South Sister. FT has stopped consulting and by its recent destructive actions is running rough-shod over the community' concerns about this special mountain. FT began constructing roads on the coupe on Monday February 21, 2005.

This legal action is all about a small community standing up to government bureaucracy and corporations, who place money above environmental and animal protection, consultation with local communities and the health and well-being of people who are living in local communities.

Legal actions through the Resource Management and Planning Appeals Tribunal and/or the Supreme Court of Tasmania seem to be, at present, the only way FT will be controlled and made accountable to the law.
