Four protestors scaled the Sydney Opera House this morning and unfurled a 'No Harvey No! Stop selling Aussie forest destruction' banner'. Two women and a man climbed the Operat House sails and all three have been arrested, along with two other woman on the ground and taken to The Rocks police station. The No Harvey No campaign has been gathering momentum over the past few months, after lobby group GetUp! joined the Markets for Change campaign against Harvey Norman's use of Australian native forest timber in some furniture products.

Markets for Change have producing YouTube video clip which mimics the Harvey Norman's brash & simple in-house style and a NoHarveyNo website http://noharveyno.net/ has been launched, gathering signatures to a petition against the retail giant headed by Australia's most successful retailer, Gerry Harvey.

The NoHarveyNo campaign is seeking for Harvey Norman to 'adopt publicly available procurement policies that ensure they stop contributing to native forest destruction and instead purchase wood products sourced from environmentally responsible managed plantations.'

It is not known at this stage whether the Opera House protestors are associated with Markets for Change or GetUp!

Should furniture be maunfactured from Australian native forest ? Should furniture retailers have to disclose whether native forest timber is used in their products or is it irrelevant?
