Pulp politics 101 – Gunns fiasco will hit federal election
Will hopefully post full version (about 40% longer) here in the next day or so. But for now please visit New Matilda, grab yourself a free 4 week subscription (or a very affordable year-long one) and check out the story that’s been eating me for the last 6 weeks. Am absolutely stoked that Matthew Newton has allowed the use of his beautiful Weld Angel for the article.
From the page:
The situation is still extremely volatile. On 2 May, Les Baker, General Manager of the Gunns Pulp Mill Project, let slip on a Christian website that ANZ will be securing finance for the mill. There is speculation that this would conflict with ANZ’s obligations as a signatory to the Equator Principles. And on 17 May, the Wilderness Society (TWS) launched a Federal Court action against Turnbull and Gunns. Led by a highly experienced legal team, TWS’s challenge alleges Governmental bias, abrogation of due process, and seeks delay of the current process until its legality can be determined.
