NATION’S HEART GOES OUT TO FIRE VICTIMS

Media Release | Spokesperson Bob Brown Sunday 8th February 2009, 12:00am

"The nation's heart is with the victims of this bushfire horror," Australian Greens Leader Bob

Brown said today.

"I join with all Australians in expressing sheer heartfelt sorrow and empathy with the people

who have lost so much, so cruelly, in this inferno," Senator Brown said.

"We thank and pay the highest tribute to the thousands of professionals and volunteers

fighting the fires and helping the victims, often at great risk to themselves.

"The Greens will be backing efforts by federal, state and local government to bring urgent aid

and assistance to everyone involved," Senator Brown said.
