Anti-trawler group launches attack ad in The Australian

A green group has launched an attack ad in protest of the arrival of a super-trawler fishing vessel in Australian waters.

The environmental group, a combination of 13 different protest groups, is organising a protest against the FV Margiris on Saturday 11 August in Hobart Port.

As well as press, the ‘Turn Away The Super Trawler’ campaign is being mobilised using Facebook, and has more than 2,000 fans.

The design of the ad was by Streetline Media.

The group says 23,000 people have signed a petition, which is due to arrive in Tasmania later this month.

The ad ran on page 9 of The Australian today.
