Nativesrule campaign started at Western Sydney Uni Campus Rydalmere when students innocently at lunch found themselves confronted by the boisterous Tasmanian Tiger, the Golden Pup… with the truth of what’s happenening to vast areas of NSW and Australia, reminder of what awaits Australia’s wildlife in the event of a COALition win.
Despite our delight to meet each other the message is grim….
Abbott’s announcement last week when he visited Tasmania and released his Liberal National Party (Coalition) Economic Growth Plan for ‘The Applie Isle”
On Page 17
The Coalition will maintain its support for long-term Regional Forest Agreements across Australia. (That means extended contracts to international corporations to rip out natives forests across Australia – at least in Tasmania, NSW, Victoria and Western Australia … and will probably also be long term contracts established for Queensland)
The Coalition will not support any further protections for native forests.

In regard to Tasmania
“The Coalition has never supported Labor’s recent …. World Heritage extension, which was put in place against the will of the Tasmanian people, and we will seek to have it removed.
We will establish a 20-year rolling life to each Regional Forest Agreement and provide resource security and a stable investment environment to the forestry industry.”
