Environmental democracy up for grabs:a cross-roads for the Australian environment?

This article discusses international counter-environmental activism in the context of recent events in Australia. It reviews so-called Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation (or SLAPP) law suits as a popular approach used by anti-environmental interests to prohibit activists from participating in specified protest activities. Challenges to the tax exempt status and thus the financial viability of environmental groups, public relations campaigns, and the establishment of faux or "front groups" are also identified as problems facing the environmental movement.(Original source: http://www.thechangeagency.org/Assets/PDFS/articles/EnvDemocracy05.pdf)
