Revelations that the Bob Brown Foundation has been using JobKeeper payments to fund their extremist protest activity is simply unacceptable.
JobKeeper was specifically designed to help those people that needed it through the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring businesses could survive until our economy returned to life, which it has now done.
For the Bob Brown Foundation to use these payments as TreeKeeper to fund protestors that further inhibit business, is just a further blow to hard working Tasmanians.
Trespassing and radical protesting should not be a professional job supported by taxpayer money.
The BBF must immediately return these funds, or donate them to every business that has suffered at the hands of professional extremist protesters.
