Pulp politics 101 – Gunns fiasco will hit federal election

with one comment

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.

  1. An excellent article, mate.

    Re ANZ, I seem to recall a bit of shareholder activism of late regarding ANZ’s involvement with logging in PNG, too.
