When: 10am, Tuesday 5 June 2012, Melbourne CBD

WEDCityBlockthumb.pngHundreds of people will join hands around one of Melbourne CBD’s 1 hectare city blocks on World Environment Day as a measure of the threat to our forests, oceans and wild places from logging and mining.
- Every day, 10 city block sized areas of Victoria’s forests are logged, mostly to make cheap products like Reflex paper.
- An area the size of 3,500 city blocks of the Kimberley’s stunning landscape is at risk of being converted to an oil and gas mining site. Come and join hands with hundreds of others on the United Nations’ 12th World Environment Day and show your support for Australia’s world renowned natural environment.
- And in a once in a lifetime opportunity, the equivalent to 108,000,000 city blocks of our marine territory is up for protection in 2012!
