Brown says Garrett go ahead for pulp mill bulldozers is irresponsible

Media Release
Bob Brown 2 Apr 2008

Australian Greens leader Bob Brown says the Garrett go-ahead for bulldozing the pulp mill site is environmentally irresponsible.
"The Minister should name the land he insisted Gunns protect elsewhere as so-called offset to destruction of this habitat," Senator Brown said.
"Mr Garrett is giving Gunns options, but the affected wedge-tailed eagles and Tasmanian Devils get none. This go-ahead leads directly to the destruction of 200,000 hectares of native forests over the next 2 decades."
"Mr Garrett is approving death by increment for Tasmania's forests and wildlife," Senator Brown said.
