Atherton Tablelands farms snatched up by Chinese and Japanese

The Japanese corporation Itochu has bought Dole Australias entire farming operation for an undisclosed price.

Dole specializes in growing bananas for Australian markets and employs a large workforce, consisting mainly back packers and a few local Tablelands workers.

It also brought in Filipino workers on 457 visas.

The question now is how many local workers will keep their jobs and how many people will the Japanese company bring in?

Cairns News has been advised some 220 workers at another large farming enterprise, Howe Farming,  have been told their jobs may not be secure, due to a sale of the holdings to the Chinese.

Whilst these farmers cannot be blamed for selling many people are steadfastly opposed to Chinese or Japanese corporations buying such valuable food-producing assets.

More information will be published as it comes to hand.

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.
