Environment East Gippsland Inc - [forest_alliance] DSE case dropped - bigger targets to aim at

Dear members and supporters,

After our significant win for rainforest sites this week, where VicForests agreed not to log in important rainforest zones,  we have decided to drop the Supreme Court case against the DSE Secretary.

We believe our legal arguments were strong, but after considering the valuable time and money still needed to pursue them in the Supreme Court, we made the decision to drop the case. It was more of a ‘tidying the edges’ issue of forcing DSE to put the rest of the areas inside protected zones (which are only non-statutory, non-permanent zones anyway).

We are now diverting our resources and legal team’s efforts into an even bigger case which we hope to get up and running before the end of the year or in the new year. Stay tuned!
