Today I received an email from the Get Up team. Get Up! Action for Australia they are an independent movement to build a progressive Australia and bring participation back into our democracy. Well I decided to post this information to help them spread the world and save Tasmania from mining. Read what they have to say below about what is happening there. We all need to step up and show that we all have a voice. Don’t allow them to destroy mother earth.
The beautiful and unique Tarkine rainforest is the second largest intact stretch of rainforest in the world, yet mining companies want to destroy it. Earlier this year the Australia Heritage Council made a clear recommendation to protect the Tarkine, but Environment Minister Tony Burke let its emergency heritage status expire, and has yet to visit the area.
Tony Burke is just days away from making a decision on the Tarkine’s heritage status and is under pressure to look the other way – but if he sees the beauty of the Tarkine first hand, he’ll see for himself why he must protect this area. We have a chopper and a team of local scientists and experts standing by, ready to take him straight into the heart of the rainforest for an insider’s tour he’ll never forget.
Add your name to the invitation to Tony Burke to visit the Tarkine…before it’s too late.
