The Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre hosting Labor’s national conference has been surrounded by billboards calling for an end to native forest logging.

A national campaign for Australia to end logging (as a New Zealand Labour government did in 2002) is being co-ordinated by the Bob Brown Foundation and began with rallies across the nation last weekend. There will be a rally outside the Brisbane Conference this Saturday to complement the billboards.

“This is a hugely popular move for the Albanese government to make. Albo has the corporate and trading powers to quickly put an end to Australia’s native forests being traded or exported. It is also the cheapest and quickest way for the PM to achieve his target of 43% reduction in greenhouse gases and for Tanya Plibersek to avoid looming extinctions of forest birds and mammals,” BBF’s campaign manager Jenny Weber said today.

Eighteen billboards across inner North, East and South Brisbane – including two billboards where the ALP National Conference is taking place, as well as enroute from the airport to the city – are sending Albo a very personal message. “C’mon Albo. It’s Time. End Native Forest Logging” and “Save This Giant From The Chainsaws” will appear over heads for the next week.

Rally for Native Forests will start at Musgrave Park at 9am on Saturday 19 August and then March to outside Labor’s national conference.
