KAP NSW senate candidate says stop coal mining on prime farm land

Katters Australian Party NSW Senate candidate Tom Harris on a visit today to Caroona and Breeza at Liverpool Plains met locals and urged them to continue their fight to keep prime agricultural land in productivity.

“I am a farmer and it was great to feel that lovely rich soil as I met with locals,” said Mr Tom Harris.

Bob Katter is the only federal politician who has issued a clear trumpet call for keeping prime agricultural land in food production and to protect underground water. The vocal Queensland Federal Member has been long viewed as the conscience of the Liberals and Nationals when dealing with unpalatable issues.

“I am opposing the Shenhua and BHP coalmines on the grounds of too much risk to agricultural productivity and the national interest,” Mr Harris said.

“Unlike many of our politicians, I know that our food comes from agricultural land. You can’t eat coal. There are vast tracts of less-productive agricultural land that can be mined for coal.

“I commend the Caroona Coal Action Group and Liverpool Plains Youth Group for their courageous stance.

“Unfortunately the Australian Electoral Commission has just re-drawn the electoral boundaries removing the prime agricultural farms around Caroona and Breeza from Nationals candidate Barnaby Joyce’s electorate of New England and adding them to the huge Parkes electorate.

“This lets deputy PM Barnaby Joyce off the hook for taking a principled stance on the vital issues of Australia’s prime agricultural land in the Liverpool Plains area.”

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understand 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 this year.
