national says logging on the west coast will be all go…if we vote them back in again..(dear me..’back to the past with national’..indeed..)..
i guess many of us thought that particular battle was done and dusted..but no..time to dig out that dusty old native forest action phone-tree..eh?..
this blast from the past also reminds me of one of the more exciting pieces of radio i was involved in….
native forest action were on the job..and one of them (steve abel) had chained himself to the rotors of one of the massive russian helicopters the loggers were using…thereby stopping their days work..
and the logging company had another one of these helicopters hovering above steve abel..trying to intimidate him with downdraft etc..
at that moment ..we took steve live-to-air on the bfm breakfast show..(i can’t remember if mikey or hugh were on duty that day..)
it was wicked radio…sounded like something out of ‘nam..and was a clear telling of the message that the fight to save the forests was indeed a war…
thank goodness brash is tanking..but this is a timely reminder of what these bastards would do..eh..?
