We can no longer afford to allow VicForests to destroy our forest for paper pulp.
VicForests have logged over 20,000 ha since 2009.
We will rally at the corner of Melba Hwy and Kinglake-Healesville Rd from 10-11am the convoy to Toolangi State Forest.
12-2pm march to the area currently being logged by VicForests.
We stand in solidarity with the community of East Gippsland who are trying to stop the logging of unburnt forest in Errinundra.
(After logging, young regrowth forest predominates. Young forest is more prone to fire and burns with greater intensity than mature forest.)
Co-hosts: Kinglake Friends of the Forest*, Protect Warburton Ranges*, Ecoshout*, Melbourne Climate Choir*, Knitting Nannas of Toolangi*, Extinction Rebellion Port Phillip*, XR Forests*.
We acknowledge the Taungurung and Wurundjeri peoples, the traditional custodians of the land we meet on and pay our respects to their elders.
We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded.
