Beware of email
Fishers should beware of emails encouraging them to join the protest against the so called factory trawler in Tasmania via this website:
If you submit a protest through this site without reading the fine print and un ticking the box you will inadvertently become a member of Get Up!, a radical far left lobby group. This organisation campaigns for lockouts in marine and national parks. GetUp! recently bragged about it’s exponentially growing membership on the ABC’s The Drum program.
The survey was the initiative Rebecca Hubbard who is an operative of Environment Tasmania (The Conservation Council). Check out the Councils agenda here: http://www.et.org.au/campaigns and Rebecca’s involvement here: http://www.et.org.au/search/node/hubbard
Rather than giving green extremists a leg up, I suggest concerned fishers protest directly to the federal fisheries minister here:
Regards and good fishing
