Australian Greenpeacers arrested blocking woodchip exports

Date : 17th February 2004, Source : ENS



HOBART, Tasmania, Australia, February 17, 2004 (ENS) - Greenpeace Australia Sunday stopped the export of woodchips from Tasmanian old-growth forests to Japan for seven hours until the police came to take them into custody. A team of seven Greenpeacers dramatized their effort to protect the ancient forests of Tasmania's Styx Valley by climbing onto the loading gantry at Tasmania's Triabunna port, preventing woodchips from being loaded onto the cargo ship "Pearl Queen."
