Premier’s baseless vilification of fellow Tasmanians

Media Release
Bob Brown 19 Feb 2012

Premier Lara Giddings claims she has seen tree spikes used by environmentalists.

It is a crass return to the Lennon era of fake vilification of environmentally-aware Tasmanians, Australian Greens Leader Senator Bob Brown said in Hobart today.

“We must all expect better of premiers, especially when, in the same breath, she’s calling for an end to division. 

“For decades, whenever the logging supremos get angry, tree spikes or bombs are brought on to the agenda – it’s a very tawdry ploy,” Senator Brown said.
