Shireen, I don't really know except by reading between the lines. Players
seemed to be environmentalists/fisherman versus logging companies and the
regulators. They claim the environmentalists/fishers got left out of some
discussion (snookered) and most of the environmental controls they had worked
to establish were removed by the logging company and the regulators. You'd
have to contact Felice Pace <felicep at sisqtel.net> and/or Alan Levine
<alevine at MAIL.MCN.ORG> to really know the background to it all. Perhaps if
you do find out you could pass the information back to ACN-L.

Thanks
