NO HARVEY NORMAN NO! GLOBAL 24 HOURS OF ACTION LAUNCHED FOR AUSSIE FORESTS


This morning, forest campaigners from The Last Stand visited Harvey Norman stores in Melbourne and Hobart to launch a global 24 hours of action targeting Harvey Norman, which will be held around the world on 7 and 8 October.

The Last Stand served Harvey Norman with an ‘Action Overdue’ notice, alerting the company to the upcoming global action and informing them that action on halting the sale of products sourced from Australia’s native forests was long overdue.

‘In 10 days time, the whole world will be standing up and saying No Harvey No! Stop selling Aussie forest destruction! From the streets of London to the white sands of Vanuatu, and at Harvey Norman stores across Australia, the global community will be speaking out against the continued devastation of Australia’s spectacular native forests’ said Ula Majewski, spokeperson for The Last Stand.

Community members will be taking action at multiple Harvey Norman stores in Australia, New Zealand and Ireland, and actions are planned in a multitude of countries, including Canada, India, Colombia, Belgium, Indonesia and South Africa.

‘Today, we have served a notice on Harvey Norman to inform them that action for our world-class native forests is long overdue, and calling on them once again to stop profiting from the industrial-scale devastation of these irreplaceable ecosystems’ said Ms Majewski.
