Australian Greens Leader Bob Brown will be speaking at a fundraiser for the remaining Gunns 20 defendants in

Melbourne this evening.

"It's time for Gunns to drop the case. It's doing them no good and certainly not the defendants either."

"This trial, set down for 2 February 2010, will be the first trial of a case in which a major corporation has sued

environmental activists."

"Legislation should be enacted, as it has in the ACT, to prevent the big end of town silencing people who would

otherwise engage in public debate and protest," Senator Brown said.

There are six defendants remaining in the original Gunns 20 case, five individuals and the Huon Valley

Environment Centre.
