Students plan walkout against pulp mill


Tasmanian high school, college and university students are planning to walk out of class on November 1 to protest federal environment minister Malcom Turnbull's approval of the Gunns' pulp mill.

Students Against the Pulp Mill (SAPM) is calling on students to leave school and meet at Parliament Lawns at 12.30pm for a 1pm rally.

"We are not allowed to vote, but we are the generation that will be affected by the pulp mill the most", SAPM spokesperson Gabby Forward said. "We are showing our dissent by voting with our feet."
