Source: Forests for Life – Save Western Australian Native Forests
The karri, jarrah, tuart and tingle forests are the heart of Australia’s South West. Western Australians love them and want to see them protected.
Protecting native forests, ensuring their health and vitality, supporting sustainable forest enterprises and transitioning the timber industry will bring tremendous environmental, social and economic benefits to the South West and the whole of Western Australia.
For many years we have been told that forest protection is in conflict with economic prosperity and employment. But as you’ll see, that is not the case. The timber industry is not profitable and relies on our taxes to stay afloat. Mills are closing and workers are losing their jobs. A well managed transition is overdue and its time has come.
We welcome your support and involvement as we put the FORESTS FOR LIFE plan into action. On this site you will discover what’s happening right now in the forests, what we need to do about it and how we can create hundreds of jobs, grow our own timber and deliver profound environmental benefits.
We encourage you to sign up, contact us, share the information and donate. Together we can make this happen!
This shit is just a little bit concerning!!!
FUCK THE EARTH FUCKERS BEFORE THEY DESTROY THE LAND !!! >>>>
>>>Always with the conscious dubbing on Bass Culture Players – ‘rascal recommended’
Sin papeles’ sees the light today, 15J, day against Detention Centers for migrants. No one is illegal.
Today solidarity is rebellion and sympathy transgression. Because they break barriers built up on legality and because they are fought by authorities with violence.’Sin papeles’ (‘without papers’ in spanish) means to defy. An invitation to acknowledge that so-called other side behind that line we are not supposed to cross. What they want us to ignore and not feel as equal. ‘Sin papeles’ is revealing a truth without discretion. ‘Sin papeles’ is, in addition, an exercise of collectivity, where Diemuba Cissé’s voice brings Musta Fall and Mamadou Dia lyrics to life, riding on Bass Culture Players riddim. Music has been recorded by diverse musicians, produced by Puppa Shan and finally brought together by Alchemy Dubs mastering. ‘Sin papeles’ is not yours, nor mine. It belongs to everyone that heads the way with the conviction we are all in the same boat.

The Federal Budget contains cuts of $1.4 million p.a., funding that currently keeps community radio stations broadcasting on digital in 5 capital cities. Community radio’s standing alongside public and commercial broadcasters is at risk.
The good news is that community radio has great community support and during this election campaign we’ll be speaking up loud and clear and calling for both the Coalition and Labor to restore the funding if they win government.
Sign the petition below and we’ll make sure that both Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Shorten get your message.
Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Shorten, as a supporter of community radio I’m asking you to reinstate funding to keep community radio on digital if you win government.
Community radio serves so many Australians; from radio reading for people with a print disability to programming in the different languages spoken across our country, to Indigenous broadcasters, faith based stations, regional stations and youth stations.
Please don’t leave community radio behind.
The RET and Forests: What’s the Story?
Moves to include the burning of native forests to generate electricity in the Renewable Energy Target (RET) will be bad for renewables and disastrous for forests.
In a sunburned country, blessed with ample sunshine, we should be treasuring our precious native forests, rather than logging and burning them to make dirty energy.
Our National Forest Campaigner, Warrick Jordan, argues that “including a new incentive for logging high conservation value forests and important wildlife habitat is never going to be worthy of the tag ‘renewable’”.
A poll commissioned by the Wilderness Society showed that everyday Australians are vehemently opposed to including burning native forest as renewable energy (no surprises there) with more than two-thirds of the people polled opposed to the idea.
Our National Director, Lyndon Schneiders, cut through the Government’s spin and noted that including burning forests in the renewables bill has ‘nothing to do with promoting a transition to renewable energy and everything to do with propping up a native forest logging industry.’
The RET Bill has passed the Lower House, and is headed for the Senate in mid-June.
Check out the 10 reasons why burning native forests for electricity should not be included in the RET.
Stop this nonsense!
Please email Victorian Senators Muir and Madigan. Tell them why burning native forests for power is not a good idea, and that as a Victorian, why you don’t support forest destruction being dressed up as a ‘renewable’. Ask them to consider your views when the Bill comes before the Senate and they vote on it.
Sign our petition, and tell the Government today that Australians don’t want our native forests incinerated

…There’s a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part, you can’t even passively take part, and you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop! —Mario Savio, Berkeley Free Speech Movement
To gain what is worth having, it may be necessary to lose everything else. —Bernadette Devlin, Irish activist and politician
First post for year is one of critical importance to all upon Earth whom wish to make it a beautiful place for all creatures, and those whom understand the many benefits in keeping our remaining forests standing….
