VIDEO: Forest action targets Ta Ann logging ship in Hobart harbour
Huon Valley Environment Centre last night participated in a peaceful action on the Hobart waterfront. Activists used a projector to place images and messages about Ta Ann on the side of a vessel that was in port loading veneer.
"In a cutting edge action, Huon Valley Environment Centre projected messages saying 'Stop Selling Forest Destruction', and images of logging areas that Ta Ann has received timber from," Huon Valley Environment Centre's Jenny Weber said.
"Last night's innovative projected images will be used online to continue to expose the practices of this Malaysian logging company and the loss of forests in Tasmania to feed their contract.
"Huon Valley Environment Centre's campaign is exposing that the ongoing logging of independently verified forests with world heritage values are being logged to feed Ta Ann. And the company continues to sell their timber from Tasmania as eco-friendly."
