The imminent logging of the Upper Florentine forest is a national disgrace, Australian Greens Leader Bob Brown said today.
"There is a large convoy of police on its way to the Florentine blockade to coincide with the beginning of logging season," Senator Brown said.
"The Upper Florentine Forest has been deemed of World Heritage value. The imminent logging operation there is a national disgrace.
"Claims by Prime Minister Rudd that native forest logging is sustainable are patently stupid," Senator Brown said.
