Part One Introducing the Upper Florentine Forest Direct Action Kids
This is a three-part documentary about one of Tasmania's ancient threatened forests. The valley has some of the most amazing giant Eucalyptus trees, Sassafras and old beautiful Myrtles, such natural beauty is hard to convey through a screen, come to Tasmania and see the forests for yourself.
Tasmania's old growth forests are under threat by a money hungry short-sighted corporation, called Gunns Ltd. They have the government wrapped around their little finger. They are ripping up these intricate ecosystems and turning them into woodchip for paper. The industry is not sustainable and action needs to be taken to stop this disgusting destruction.
In December 2006, non-violent direct action volunteers began the tree sit blockade of a proposed logging road through Tasmania's Upper Florentine Valley. Halting the destruction of pristine ancient old growth forest, which should be protected as WORLD HERITAGE.
