Greens take Pulp Mill fight to Bennelong

29th Aug 07

Greens Senator Kerry Nettle and Greens candidate for Bennelong Lindsay Peters will kick off a

letter boxing campaign in the seat of Bennelong today asking voters to write to the Prime

Minister requesting that his government not to approve the proposed Tasmanian pulp mill.

"The people of Bennelong need to understand that a vote for Howard is a vote for environmental

destruction if this Pulp Mill proposal is allowed to go ahead," Senator Nettle said.

"With State and Federal Labor also backing the Pull Mill proposal the only safe environmental

vote is for The Greens.

"The Prime Minister's seat is vulnerable and The Greens are working hard to remind the Prime

Minister that the Pulp Mill is national issue that even his traditional Bennelong voters care about.

Greens Candidate for Lindsay Peters said "I will be getting out in the electorate today

distributing material to all voters urging them to raise the Pull Mill issue with both John Howard

and Maxine McKew.

"The Pulp Mill issue will shift votes in Bennelong. People here care about the environment,

whether it's the Tamar Valley in Tasmania or Lane Cove National Park.

"I know that people are sick of needless polluting and destroying our environment and the

Tamar Valley Pulp Mill proposal is just another greedy and dirty attack on a beautiful part of

Australia."
