New Book's Revelations Shocking - NFA

Native Forest Action is shocked by the revelations in Secrets and Lies by Nicky Hager and Bob Burton, and says that Timberlands has lost all right to have control of public native forests.

"Timberlands cannot be trusted with our native forests. Now that the truth behind Timberlands' anti-environmental campaign has been revealed, there is no option but for the government to stop the logging immediately," said Native Forest Action spokesperson, Dean Baigent-Mercer.

"We knew there was some sort of anti-environmental public relations campaign against us, but we had no idea just how far-reaching and orchestrated the campaign has been."

"The book shows that all the attacks and slurs against us during the last three years have been part of a calculated PR campaign to keep Timberlands' native forest logging going at any cost," said Mr Baigent-Mercer.

"We find it hard to see how the government could allow the senior staff of Timberlands to retain their jobs after these revelations."

"We want Mrs Shipley to take full responsibility for this outrageous manipulation of the public and the inappropriate spending of public funds. The issue rests squarely with her."
