Updates from Camp Newry and the fight against logging on Gumbaynggirr Country

Wednesday, 16 August 2023 - 5:30pm to 6:00pm

The logging of Gumbaynggirr Country by Forestry Corporation NSW has been long and destructive, and the resistance to it has been staunch. Gumbaynggirr Elders, Custodians and accomplices set up Camp Newry to protest the destruction of culturally significant sites and it wasn't long until the cops rolled in to remove Elders and people at camp and extinguish the Sacred Fire. We talk to Maddie from Bellingen Activist Network about their staunch resistance at Camp Newry and how people can get involved.
