THE SWANS ARE DEAD – Foreword & Acknowledgements

The paper, "THE SWANS ARE DEAD" by Bob McmaHon, is in seven parts. It came out of experiences, and an issue of contention, in Chile that have resonances in Tasmania and the Tamar Valley specifically. It is published here in the hope that:
1. people will spread the word and use the information freely;
2. Tasmanians will think seriously about what’s at stake when all too little attention is paid to the ways natural resources are exploited;
3. Tasmanians will also think seriously before allowing others to take advantage of their resources; and
4. in the whole process, pay more than scant regard to Tasmania's resources and their true value.

This site has been facilitated by T3RT – The Three Rivers Trust – and specifically so via The Two Swans Project and The zingHOUSE Graphics Network.

A limited edition book is currently in production and so too is there a DVD being produced that draws upon the Blackneck Swan's Story and the environmental degradation that it marks. Watch this space for further developments and for more information please eMail the author.
