Stop crucifying the rainforest now, 1984

Stop crucifying the rainforest now, 1984. This photograph from the 1983-84 protests against the building of the Daintree-Bloomfield road encapsulates the protestors’ projection of the rainforest as an Edenic wilderness under threat from a materialistic and uncaring world. It also conveys the Green activists’ projection of themselves as the voice of righteousness in a morally-charged discourse on the preservation of the world’s rainforests. Collection Courier Mail
