Like so many people have said, this is the time to stand. Imagine if the proposal goes through, and in a few years there are proposals coming out our ears trying to damage our wild places. Wouldn't it be sad to sit there and think "I could have done something about this".

The internet has given us a powerful tool for this sort of thing, so bushwalker Zane has good advice: tell people. It's not just a small island in Tasmania. A successful appeal will be a legal precedent, used by other governments to justify rezoning and even excising parts of national parks and WHAs.

A couple pics from the Hobart rally. Some good speeches but a disappointingly small crowd. The ramifications of this will be so far reaching if it's not stopped. Please bushwalkers, get active!!

Well done on the organisation of Saturday's rally, it was good to hear Labour are taking an interest in the failing EPA process, and also to point out without a doubt that the liberals see Tasmanian wilderness as as prime realestate and will happily change the rules to ensure they do everything they can to spite the left. It is sad to hear rambling voices claim that the Greens want to 'lock up' our state when it is these wild areas that are being 'locked up' by our government unless you have a few thousand to throw around...
I urge people to get along to these events where possible, it falls on deaf ears with our current government sadly but definitely interests the center left.

Some good shots there. I saw a summary on the news that night and noticed how not huge the crowd was. I really wanted to make it, but was stuck on a redline coach that arrived in Hobart just in time for the event to finish :(
