Harriet Swift: Close the Eden chipmill and end Native forest logging.

Sunday, 22 March 2020 - 11:00am to 11:30am

A  hundred thousands tons of woodchips and  the Eden wood chip mill burned in January bushfires.

 

80% of the New South Wales, South East  state forests were incinerated.

 

Harriet Swift tells us what's happening on the ground now. 

 

Harriet  lives in the Bega region and has been  campaigning for decades  to close the wood chip mill and end native forest logging.
