In December 2004, 17 individuals and 3 groups were sued by Gunns Ltd, Australia’s largest wood chipper, for $6.4 million. A day later Gunns’ applied for approval to build a pulp mill in Tasmania’s Tamar Valley. Almost 5 years on, the case continues with 6 defendants remaining. The cases against the other defendants have been settled or unilaterally dropped by Gunns.

The opening date of the exhibition, 2 February 2010, coincides with the first day of the
Gunns20 trial.

This exhibition features photographs by: Senator Bob Brown; Olegas Truchanas; Peter Dombrovskis; Rob Blakers; and Wolfgang Glowacki.
