Over the next few weeks, in three great locations (Denmark, Margaret River & Fremantle), we are hosting three Forest Fiestas to celebrate the magnificent South West forests and the State Government’s recent commitment to end native forest logging by January 2024.
Let’s come together to acknowledge and celebrate the forests we love and the long road we have travelled so far to defend them.
We will be following the same path that the campaign has followed for many years, from the South Coast forest areas on Pibelmen Country, to where the forest meets the sea in Wardandi Country, and up to Whadjuk Country.
Denmark is first up on Sunday the 28th of November on Strickland Street.
The details for the three events can be found here.
We have been inundated with offers of support and we’re so excited about the amazing musicians, top quality food, smoking ceremonies, exhibition of campaign history, art and entertainment that are going to be highlights of these fantastic free public events.
From here, much work remains to be done to get the details right and ensure forests are properly and securely protected, and as we celebrate, we regenerate, recharge, and stoke the fires of the forest movement.
We look forward to seeing you in Denmark, Margaret River and/or Fremantle.
Registration is free, however, we welcome donations to help cover costs and remunerate the bands and artists. Every dollar counts and when you donate, you go in the draw to win a door prize valued at $1,000 (one prize for each event).
We have just set up this crowdfund to help with the costs, so if you aren’t registering to come, but would still like to contribute please do so here. Thank you so much for your support, we are formidable together.
The details for the Margaret River and Freo Fiestas are firming up, and new exciting additions are coming in every day, so stay tuned for artist and entertainment updates.
