Angry protestors say police used the cover of darkness to on protestors blocking logging efforts in the South West. Tony McManus spoke to Jess Beckerling form WA Forest Alliance who said 100 year old jarrah trees have already been cut down today.

Blog comments Your Say

  • yes woodsman we all have better things to do but while retards like you are alive we can not rest. why should we as taxpayers fund the NON-SUSTAINABLE AND HEAVILY SUBSIDIZED destruction of perfectly good native bushland for a low grade product ? you and your kind are going to be the end of life as we know it....bottom feeder-----evolve already !!

  • To the English lady complaining about the western power van always parked in the driveway he actually lives there and got home aft doing a 12 hour shift. So While you are tucked away warm in bed while the storms are on think of him and the other hard working western power workers out in the rain trying to put your power on!!!

  • I would say this to you Woodsman, you do not understand the grim situation our forests our in. You use the term "renewable" with gay abandon. Renewable in whose lifetime?? The habitat trees you speak of are pitiful specimens standing in the middle of bald, dried out patches of cleared land, they are useless for habitat. Future generations will never hear the deafening sound of vast flocks of cockatoos blackening the skies as they fly over. Not many of this generation have seen a numbat, quoll, pygmy possum. What a disgrace.

  • It's time the DEC & forestry comission & madse redundant. OLD GROWTH LOGGING must STOP. Get rid of the government.

  • The FPC is totally out of control. I have just viewed a video made in September 2011 which shows how the FPC is poisoning 1000s of Marri trees in a water catchment area - in a effort to create a "natural" monoculture of jarrah. The poisoning does not work, but damages the Marri to the point they cease to be healthy habitat trees. Huge amounts of herbicide are being injected into native forests - in a practice that has been discontinued elsewhere in the world as useless and damaging to the environment. This has to be stopped as both poor forestry practice and destructive of black cockatoo feeding and nesting. It also impacts on many other species of native wildlife.

  • Hey greenies! I don't get it. You are all crying into your pretzels because a small patch of Warrup block is to be harvested for a renewable product, with full retention of habitat trees, and no long term adverse effects on fauna and flora. You get upset when the cops take away your lump of concrete which you want to use to stop a sustainable industry. Or else you want to throw around butyric acid like spoilt teenagers. Surely you have better things to do, like take an interest in mining in our jarrah forests where not only are all trees removed, but the earth is completely dug up for a non-renewable product. Or are you all too scared to "lock on" to a dump truck on a minesite? You are all so soft and weak, with such silly idealogies, it makes me laugh. Thankfully, most mainstream politicians, on both sides, have some sense and understanding of this issue and ignore you as they should.
