Tarkine
If it were anywhere else in the developed world, it would be Cherished, Protected and Adored.
Not so in Tasmania Australia, where the Greedy or Corrupt or Subservient or Morally Bankrupt and Uneducated Illiterate Rabble*,
just can't help themselves to plunder it and foul their own backyard.

THE TARKINE and THE TASMANIAN DEVIL
ARE THE REAL LOOSERS FROM THE 2013 AUSTRALIAN FEDERAL ELECTION


NEWS August 2013 :
TARKINE FALLS FOUL OF POLITICAL CORRUPTION,
GREED, MORAL BANKRUPTCY & SUCKING UP

SCUM & VENAL PIECES OF SHIT (see why) FEDERAL POLITICIANS TONY BURKE and MARK BUTLER
have ignored expert advice that mining the Tarkine will be a death sentence (or extinction) for the Tasmanian Devil in the wild.
In years past, with the assistance of the Tasmanian government's bounty on its hide,
the Thylacine (Tasmanian Tiger), which was the World's Largest Carnivorous MARSUPIAL, became extinct.
After extinction, the Tasmanian Devil replaced the Thylacine as being the World's Largest Carnivorous Marsupial.
The Tasmanian Devil is endemic to Tasmania and is only found in the wild, in Tasmania where up until now,
it has thrived in the Tarkine, which is its last stronghold i.e. an area free of the Facial Tumour Disease.
Once again governments of Australia threaten extinction (in the wild), to the World's Largest Carnivorous Marsupial.

HORROR & DEATH COMING TO THE TARKINE !!!

Supposed Federal Government "strict conditions" to mining vandals include,
that around $48,000 must be paid in compensation (not protection at all, just the cost of doing business)
for every devil squashed on the road by IRON ORE trucks carting their loads across the pristine Tarkine,
to the port of Burnie during the estimated 140 heavy truck movements per day
(or one every 5 minutes, "during daylight hours per the strict conditions", effectively frightening tourists away)

Yeah right, so the meat head Iron Ore truck driver
is going to stop after it runs over a Devil and says...
OH I MUST REPORT THIS!!!

reckons about noise pollution....

NOTICE
THIS SITE WAS TAKEN DOWN BY CRIMINALS AT AROUND 4-30pm ON 18 JULY 2013 BY A MALICIOUS AND ILLEGAL DDoS ATTACK.
AS YOU CAN SEE WE ARE BACK ONLINE DUE TO RELOCATING TO A NEW SERVER.
NOT ONLY DID THE DDoS ATTACK TAKE DOWN THIS WEBSITE, IT TOOK DOWN A LARGE NUMBER OF TASMANIAN BUSINESSES THAT ARE HOSTED ON THE SAME SERVER.
THOSE BUSINESS ARE STILL DOWN UNTIL THE ATTACK STOPS (now back online 20 July 2013). A COMPLAINT TO THE POLICE HAS BEEN MADE.

PUBLISHER'S COMMENT
Past and present Tasmanian Government FUCKWIT & CORRUPT politicians, the CMFEU, AWU and SOME Tasmanian Local Councils, together with a load of DUMB FUCK or DISORGANISED Tasmanians just can't help themselves to be BLACK BOB or MEAT HEAD mentality, SEE HERE & WATCH THE VIDEO.

*NOTABLY the Tarkine is situated in the Federal Electorate of BRADDON which is distinguished by having the lowest proportion of residents who completed high school of any electorate in Australia (SOURCE CRIKEY). ALSO SEE Half of Tasmanians are functionally illiterate. AND Saul Eslake says poor educational outcomes play a major role in Tasmania’s long running recession.

They serially fail to realise the importance of areas such as the TARKINE to world sustainability SEE.

The thin edge of the wedge, as the Tarkine has 57 current mining applications (SOURCE), this is a huge open cut Iron Ore Mine Pit (far in excess of HISTORICAL TARKINE MINING e.g. Gold Mining and a nugget over 7kg - HOWEVER SEE THIS) in the middle of the pristine Tarkine, which requires the iron ore to be trucked across the pristine Tarkine to Burnie port to supposedly support 60 Tasmanian jobs, is offensive and beyond description to the the publisher of this website as of today (19 July 2013).

SHREE MINERALS & SHAREHOLDERS

Trash the Tarkine for 60 jobs.... give me a break !!!
IN THE ARENA OF A LOOMING FEDERAL ELECTION , the real reason for the then Federal Environment Minister TONY BURKE (struck down in the Federal Court and now re-approved by MARK BUTLER) approving the Shree Minerals open cut Iron Ore Mine for the Tarkine (SEE AUSTRALIAN GEOGRAPHIC), had nothing to do with jobs or the environment and more to do with shoring up the ALP vote for Sid Sidebottom in BRADDON electorate for the coming 2013 Federal Election. As usual GRUBBY & VENAL POLITICIANS (especially so, when entrusted with Public Policy), make many decisions for political reasons instead of environmental reasons, when their own political interests are at risk. There is an abundance of mining companies like Shree Minerals Limited, they say what they do and we all know what they are about, that's all fair in love and war.

The company is unable to pay the AU$94,000 (NZ$110,000) Court ordered compensation to each of the families of those killed.
" A TOTAL LACK OF REMORSE " according to New Zealand Judge Jane Farish. It is not often a company steps back and holds its hands up and says, 'I have nothing', she said.

Shree Minerals Limited has been requested by email to confirm or deny the information above, they have failed to respond.
The
SHREE DIRECTOR'S BIOGRAPHY fails to set out the above indiscretions despite there being a ROYAL COMMISSION into Pike River Coal Limited.
The knuckle draggers of North West Tasmania are well known for failing to cherish what they have, shifting allegiances at the drop of a hat and sucking up to those they think can offer them some sort of benefit, and bugger the environment.
Sucking up to those that are GREEDY and MORALLY BANKRUPT deserves condemnation by the Australian public and shareholders.

29 August 2013 @ 8-59am - COUNCILOR RODNEY HARDY has provided notice that he is taking legal advice on the publication of a photo of himself without his express written permission.

PUBLISHER’S RESPONSE :
In relation to 5 above in the circumstances of the 29 deaths and the comments of Judge Jane Farish, I am sickened by the turning a blind eye to this vile issue. The images in issue are used by me in the exercise of reporting news and criticism or review (as allowed by the COPYRIGHT ACT 1968) of the :
disgusting acts of MORALLY BANKRUPT directors;
said criticisms by Judge Jane Farish;
turning of a blind eye to these vile matters by a Tasmanian Public Authority / Municipal Council and its Mayor and Councilors;
resulting potential death sentence to the Tasmanian Devil population.
As such, I am given reason to question the moral principles and integrity of the Mayor and each and every Councilors in their public office, and as a result reject their claims to copyright ownership in the said images, without further evidence being provided.

I.

THE COUNCIL, THE MAYOR & THE COUNCILORS & THE GENERAL MANAGER
ARE HEREBY WARNED THAT

Groundless threats of legal proceedings in relation to copyright infringement
can be actionable pursuant to sub-section 202(1) of the Copyright Act 1968
HOWEVER the SCUM & VENAL likes of BURKE & BUTLER pretend to be looking after the Environment and Public Policy when in fact they are only looking after the narrow and bent political ambitions of themselves and their political party, i.e. the ALP. In this case it has become clear that Minister Burke was aware that a decision to approve the mine would ensure the spread of the Tasmanian Devil Facial Disease, "condemning the Tasmanian devil to extinction in the wild” (SOURCE SMH), but CHOSE TO WRONGLY and perhaps FRAUDULENTLY OR CRIMINALLY IGNORE IT).
(ALSO SEE : FEDERAL ELECTION BEHIND APPROVALS @ SBS)
MESSAGE FROM THE PUBLISHER... " YOU PIECES OF SHIT !!! " this sort of corruption has to STOP within the Australian political arena.
If BURKE, BUTLER & the knuckle draggers want Iron Ore, go get it from Western Australia which has 94% of Australia's resource.
Tasmania, Queensland, New South Wales and Northern Territory combined, only accounts for 1%.

FORESTRY TASMANIA MISREPRESENTS ITS THEME PARK AS A TARKINE ADVENTURE
In an attempt to adopt the iconic Tarkine brand for its own perverted and duplicitous activities, Forestry Tasmania has changed the name of its tourist theme park attraction called Dismal Swamp near Smithton in Tasmania to Tarkine Forest Adventures. The Dismal Swamp slippery dip has been operating for four years and it attracted 24,000 visitors last year. MORE AT THE HOBART MERCURY

FORESTRY TASMANIA HAS THE SOLUTION TO CLIMATE CHANGE BY EXPORTING TREES FOR BURNING!! - Oct 08
Bob Gordon
Bob Gordon, the boss of Forestry Tasmania, the government body managing the state's forests, recently stated that generating power from wood rather than coal was part of the solution to climate change...... ''Unlocking the stored sunlight in wood for the production of renewable energy has taken off across the globe, with good reason,'' Mr Gordon said. Starting in October [2008], Tasmanian timber giant Gunns will export native ''fuelwood'' from Triabunna to the Japanese company Chubu Electric. MORE AT THE CANBERRA TIMES
