Corunna logging gaining national coverage



Above: Sean Burke offers a perspective as to why logging in Corunna should be stopped.

Earlier this week WIN News ran footage of the residents blockade at Corunna Forest bringing attention of the issue to a wider audience

Reporting that a group of residents on the #NSWSouthCoast is vowing to keep up the fight to stop newly commenced logging of the #Corunna State Forest there is now a building momentum to look closely at what forestry does and how they do it weighing it up in value between economic and social value. The protests are reported to have begun following months of community consultation, petitions, requests for the Local Member to visit the site, a request from Council to reconsider buffers, all of which resulted in further dissatisfaction with locals saying that any further negotiations had come to an abrupt halt. There is little doubt that with the interest shown by local Labor and Green candidates this will become a key element in the upcoming State election following on from other logging protests in the Malua Bay, Kioloa and Mogo areas that have seen several reports of environmental breaches.
