Brown Mountain - destruction complete!

An urgent message from Jill Redwood of Environment East Gippsland . . .
These were taken yesterday - VicForests mission accomplished. This ancient stand of 600(plus) year old forest has now been fully annihilated and ready for conversion to a palm-oil plantation. Or it might as well be. They'll actually be converted to a pulpwood plantation for the Japanese paper industry.

The other four remaining stands of old growth adjoining are on the logging schedule.

Please help in whatever way you can.
