Alias Comment
s7's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: I will stop using my anz account if the pulp mill goes through
sheasworth's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Corporations must start to give more than lip service to their environmental mission statements. ANZ, you are being asked to do just that! For the good of Tassie's future, this proposed pulp mill must not be constructed.
pixiem's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Please don't let this happen, it is not necessary, it will kill Tasmania.
Catherine8's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: I live in the UK and have just been reading in the media about the plans to go ahead with this pulp mill. Drawn by its outstanding natural beauty and wilderness, I have often thought of visiting Tasmania at some point during my life. In today's so called enlightened society, it leaves me speechless that we are still so blind, greedy and short-termist that we continue to log our forests, reservoirs of huge biodiversity and carbon stores. The destruction of forests in developing countries is bad enough but in a rich, developed nation it is absolutely shocking. I can only hope that this plan doesn't go through and that I may yet be able to visit a Tasmania with its majestic forests intact and know that there are still some wild places left in our increasingly grey and urbanised world.
bungo's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Please let one of the last great wilderness' in Australia stay that way. I understand that people need jobs. But the tourist industry and sustainable farming in Tasmania are both valuable sources of employment - and will continue to be as long as nothing ecologically damaging occurs i.e. Gunns Pulp Mill.
Come on, there must be something much more worthwhile to invest money in and create long term employment. Once all the trees are gone there will be no jobs for anyone in any sector at the very least - and a barren wasteland at the very worst. What will you do then?
Think of the future generations - not just your bank balance!
Helen26's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: For the immediate dollar. Obviously short sighted. Shame. What about "their" future.
stringybark's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: As part of the majority against the pulp mill, I believe it will ruin the Tamar valley/seafront & use up native forest which would have helped stop climate change
Jane12's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: I will be taking peaceful community action along with many friends and hundreds of others to stop the construction of the abominable pulp mill in the Tamar Valley.
Sydneysider's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: The Australian public are well aware that Gunnsí proposed pulp mill, if constructed, will be disastrous for the environment, for existing agricultural, fishing and tourism industries in the Tamar Valley region, and for the people of the Tamar Valley.

Australians are not fooled by the Tasmanian Government's shameful fast-track process, nor by the limited assessment by the Federal Government. Both processes were designed to promote the proponentís interests rather than to ensure an independent, comprehensive and rigorous assessment of the impacts of the proposal.

The pulp mill is not environmentally, economically or socially sustainable and is not supported by the majority of Australians.
LwM's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: does anyone take global warming seriously?
Curran's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Please do not support the proposed pulp mill in the Tamar Valley. Let's protect our environment, democratic rights and our children's long term future.
Anonymous's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Why have financial institutions been so slow to realise that all wealth is at risk if we continue to damage the biosphere? All wealth is underwritten by the resilience and productivity of our natural environment.
PI's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: There are so many trees in the world that are not part of that PRECIOUS & FRAGILE environment in Tasmania that you can cut down. There is NO EXCUSE to fall ANY TREE in Tasmania. Please think THREE TIMES & STOP!
jaxnemesis's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Just for once, check in with your own conscience. You KNOW in your heart of hearts this is a bad idea. If ANZ give funding to this, I will be closing all of my accounts there.
F77Melb's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: I urge you to NOT support in any way, the death of one of Australia's last and much needed carbon sinks.
Anonymous's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: A pair of eagles whose nest is adjacent to the proposed mill quarry and landfill will also experience the highest levels of emissions throughout the Tamar Valley. Standard forestry prescriptions on how to log coupes near nests have been used by Gunns' experts/consultants to wrongly suggest that blasting 180,000m3 of dolerite, clearing bush in order to dump up to 50,000t of waste p/a and the polluting of the birds' air environment equates with a timber harvesting operation.

This species is endangered and Turnbull and Gunns have assessed the effects of the mill on the eagles as a 'harvesting operation'.

Pleaase refer to my submission to Gunns, a copy of which I supplied to the Wilderness Society
Mouseroarer's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: When is this planet going to be able to recover from all our demands? Can we reinvent a future which is based simply on altruism and guile? Or is that too much to ask? Please let us use our intelligence and consider all options and alternatives before killing the Earth's ancient ones.
mountain goat's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Stop the destruction of our forests now. The RFA's are written bevor our politicians understud global warming, today even my 6 and 9 year old kids know that we need this habbitat to support future generations on this planet
Stand up and make a stand for our forests, say no to the new chippmill in Tasmania.

hiff's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: The ancient forests of tasmania are truly beautiful, and are absolutely integral to the future of this great earth.
"Only after the last tree has been cut down, only after the last river has been poisoned, only after the last fish has been caught, only then will you find that money cannot be eaten."
- Its not too late to stop the destruction of our future.
Joanne2's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Can people realise that plant and tree respiration is what allows us to breath.
