Markets For Change Support Gunns Pulp Mill

"In an April report, Retailing the Forests, Markets for Change said that more than 30 of our largest retail chains stocked furniture, flooring and home improvement or paper products that had originated in native forests. The report argues Australia could be self-sufficient in forest products, relying on its existing plantation base and forgoing imports altogether - a missing piece in the jigsaw puzzle may be the kind of pulp mill Gunns has proposed for Bell Bay."  From HERE:  Groups like Markets for Change always blame the reporter for statements like that. Well why is it on their web site as well?

The enviro pro-plantation agenda has captured too many Tasmanian residents and neutralised their campaign against Gunns pulp mill. Why is a Tamar Valley lawyer and member of an anti-pulp mill group representing Code Green activists working for Markets for Change? Why is Harvey Norman only supposed to stock plantation-sourced furniture even though plantations are killing Tasmanians and feeding a tax avoidance scheme? People should stop undermining their own causes and realise these linked charities with identical agendas are all implementing Federal Government policy. The ENGO's are nearly all front groups for a few people promoting Forestry-MIS tax avoidance schemes and government policy. Being told how to think by TWS, ET, Our Common Ground, GetUp, Markets for Change, The Last Stand and the rest of the designer jeans, astro-turf environmentalists is no longer good enough.
