INTERNAL SURVEY OF ALP BRANCHES

Presentations have been made to ALP Branches by the Otway Ranges Interest Group (ORIG), a non-factional network of members within the ALP formed late 2000 in response to the intended logging by DNRE of the area adjacent to Sabine Falls in the Otways. The Group has given 35 ALP Branch presentations this year, each involving a hour address including slides, followed by discussion.

30 Branches have passed the following motion:

"That the ALP Victorian Branch and the ALP State Labor Government formally assert policy positions endorsing an immediate end to clearfell logging of native State forests in the Otway Ranges."

For details of ALP Branches that have passed the motion members of the ALP may contact ALP Otway Ranges Interest Group by email.
