Subject: [chipstop] BRUMBY LIES
Check out this footage taken by the legendary John Flyn in 1995 at a Melbourne forest rally. It has John Brumby then the Opposition leader promising that should the Labor party be elected in Victoria it would; protect all HCV forest, end export woodchipping, and move the entire logging industry into plantations.
Since getting elected Labors' record on forest protection has been appalling, it has; continued to allow logging in the states last areas of old-growth HCV forests and rain forests such as Goolengook, Errinundra etc, increased export woodchipping, and continued the policy of massive subsidy to the native forest logging industry to allow it to compete with the plantation based timber industry...
Even the Labor government most recent promises made before the November 2006 state election - to immediately protect Goolengook and 30,000 Ha of extra old-growth forest has been broken.. so now following on from such a litany of lies it has been decided to release this bomb-shell footage exposing the Victorian Premier as a liar.
See the link below, hopefully it works. High resolution copy is available for media use..
