vegan girl's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Halt all destruction of native trees everywhere. It also involves the killing of native flora and fauna - impossible to replace.
Anonymous's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Why is this thing so big? It's one thing to value add on existing exports, its another to build a processing plant that will consume vast tracts of native forest.
Ben8's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: I would like ANZ bank to seriously consider dropping loan support of this environmental disaster waiting to happen.
Anonymous's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: You have got to be as out of touch as the previous government when it comes to both public sentiment and the real issues that challenge the continuation of life on this planet. Are you really that narrow minded? If you go ahead with supporting Gunn's, the subsequent campaigns from various environmental organisations will have enormous impact upon your business. You have to ask yourself, are you willing to take that chance?
spenderg's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Logging this forest contributes to a short term financial plan, providing short term benifits that could only appeal to short sighted, self interested parties. God knows we need courage and a long term approach.
How can we sleep when our forests are burning?
Eco cop's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: As a child, fifty years ago, I saw my enchanted forest axed, cleared, and wiped away from existence, except in my memory.

I am a healthy person, but this is the nearest thing to a heart trauma, no it was a heart trauma, that I've experienced. The magical creek lost it's border of protective trees, too. No longer did we hear the splash of leaping lizards, ie water dragons or "frilly lizards" as we used to call them. Without the trees the habitat loss meant we no longer saw the beautiful blue Kingfishers, Kookaburras, plovers, kites, peewees, magpies and butcherbirds. There were others that an eight year old could not name. The tree loss, consequent erosion, and subsequent later pollution of the creek led to the loss of so many species of colourful fishlife. There were orange, and rainbow coloured fish, purplish fish, silvery fish and delectable eels. A large billabong lost it's majestic eucalypt sentry; and it's giant eels received a funereal farewell the next day, when the clay pool holding cell where they languished lifelessly was bulldozed over unceremoniously. I, an eight year old eco warrior, had what chance. That patch of field remained unused for thirty years. Steadily, year after year more transgressions, more rape of mother earth were committed, perpetrated in the name of progress. The fields are now an industrial wasteland. For a moment there I paid the abjectly inappropriate respect of starting the word industrial with a capital letter. Eco cop.
ANZ customer's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: I'm about to refinance my mortgage for a renovation. This issue will make me think twice about from whom I borrow my funds.
M Bayer's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Where does this stand with ANZ's recent award of sustainable bank of the year?
LO'B's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Banks like ANZ cannot have it both ways: being perceived as concerned about sustainability/environmental issues and supporting the companies, through financing, who are guilty of inflicting massive environmental vandalism which is not at all sustainable in the long run. Banks have to decide which is more important as they can't have it both ways. And until they draw a line in the sand, people will continue deserting the major banks who finance unethical developments and give their custom (and money) to the smaller community banks and credit unions instead.
AUSSIEBOOT's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: I recently retired from ANZ after 38 years. I will be disappointed if ANZ finance this destructive mill
Margo1's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: For the sake of Tasmania's environment and to prevent more climate change, keep the forests and stop the mill - NOW!
joanl's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: If a developing country like Indonesia can pledge to save 22 million hectares of forest at the Bali conference, surely Australia can do its part in saving the few remnants we have. The pulp mill is tax payer subsidised destruction of forests with one corporation reaping financial gain. Surely we are better off in investing those tax payer funds in sustainable industries in the region - eco-friendly tourism, organic food, vineyards etc.
Donovan's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: I find it deeply concerning that an instiution that carries and name with such influence as ANZ bank would dirty it's hands in the destruction of Australia's natural woodlands, despite the impact that it would have upon the environment in this time of global concern.
jono2's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Stop destroying our old growth forests, to replant with plantations. if the pulp mill goes ahead tourism in tassy will sufficiently decrease.
DanielR's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Even though ANZ's brand image and marketing appeals to me, I will not purchase any service or product from a bank that finances a scheme that destroys such a precious environment forever. If the project is allowed to go ahead, I will feel hugely betrayed by the party I voted for.
Rossco's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: As a shareholder of ANZ, I was horrified to learn of their potential involvement in this destructive and disgraceful proposal. I intend to divest myself of my shares and to discontinue all dealings with ANZ if they do indeed finance this atrocity.
the captain1's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: It's the same as the channel deepening in Port Phillip Bay- Environment versus Economy-the environment loses because companies like Gunns believe that they will not affect the environment and that 'world's best practice' is a safeguard. It's not because Gunns have a poor record of forgetting their environmental obligations. Please ANZ do not invest in this Pulp Mill, the supposed short term gain is not worth the long term damage to the Tamar Valley, and the Tasmanian Tourism industry.
Anonymous's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: I implore you not to fund this insane proposal while the earth is being destroyed with pollution and here we have another example of money grabbing shareholders not caring about our pristine environment in the Tamar Valley and elsewhere for the sake of dollars - when will they learn
Anonymous's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: WHY O WHY the STYX How could you allow this invasion ?
Jo12's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: I am horrified that this mill may go ahead. It is the worst possible location, will have devastating effects right through the region will and decimate native forests with it's voracious appetite for wood chip. Please act responsibly and do not fund the proposed Gunns pulp mill.
