“A true story from the heart of Queensland”
“The farmers of Queensland would like to tell you a true story” – A must view video how this unchallenged dictatorial government is poised to destroy farming in Queensland.
What is the issue?
On the 1st of May the Palaszczuk Government may rush flawed legislation through before MP’s know the truth
- Locks up 1.7 million hectares of developed farmland with no compensation
- Bans all future agricultural development in Qld by removing agriculture as a purpose under the planning act
- Severely restricts other essential management activities like reducing encroachment or controlling woody weeds.
Why has the Government proposed these changes?
The Palaszczuk Government promised the Greens to toughen the rules on the farmers of Qld in return for preferences at the last election.
The Queensland Government has admitted it has not done any analysis of the social and economic impacts of the laws, and had no intention of doing so.

Australian Patriot Radio produced this podcast with Harry Palmer and Mike Holt discussing how the majority of Queenslanders do not realise they own nothing in Queensland today after Wayne Goss and Kevin Rudd manipulated the Queensland constitution to remove private land ownership to government and amend legislation at anytime to suit their power base control of you the people … and it is still LAW … Click Here to listen.
This video explains in detail how Labor stole Queensland from the people.
A Royal Commission to investigate banks took a step closer after two senators and two Lower House members vowed they would push the Coalition Government into establishing an inquiry as soon as possible.
Bob Katter, One Nation senators Rod Culleton and Malcolm Roberts and the ALP member for Herbert, Cathy O’Toole at a Townsville meeting on Saturday condemned current banking practices.
They agreed that for Australia to survive record bank foreclosures and business failures, the banks had to operate within the law.
Speakers believed the Coalition Government would not take any action to rein in “unlawful” banking practices which had caused multiple suicides, family break-ups and business failures around the nation.
Western Australia One Nation senator Rod Culleton slammed the record number of foreclosures describing how he too had been a victim of “dodgy” banks.
“Banks operate like organised crime,” Senator Culleton said.
“I’ve had a litany of evidence come into my office of receivers sinking the boot into their customers.
“That’s what they think about the lamb chop on their plate; enough is enough.
“The banks seem to think they are above the law because they’re unregulated, we’re going to change that.” He said if banks did not support their customers through thick and thin, he’d support the creation of a sovereign rural bank to assist farmers.
“We’re here to correct things and we’re in support of a sovereign rural bank where the beneficiaries are the people who bank with it,” he said.
“It’s important the public realise if we lose our agriculture and our rural people we will be in strife and we will lose the quality of our food.”
Member for Kennedy Bob Katter told the crowd of 50 farmers, small businessmen and home owners the banks own the Australian Government.
“Banks have the only government guaranteed business in Australia,” Mr Katter said.
“We only need one vote to get the royal commission but in 16 years no member has ever crossed the floor in Federal Parliament when it comes to banks.”
“My office has details of nearly 100 cases of banking malpractice that has ruined businesses and families.”
Supporting the One Nation senators and Mr Katter was Member for Herbert Cathy O’Toole saying she too had banking industry misbehaviour in her sights.
“We need Australians to believe they can have confidence in the banks and financial institutions that serve us,” she said.
“And we aren’t even measuring the holistic cost to the people affected in our communities.
“The first place you’d want to have a look at the additional costs is in healthcare, people’s physical, mental and emotional health has been destroyed; families have been destroyed and suicides are occurring.
“All these things have a huge impact on the social structure of community in addition to the financial impact.”
Burdekin-district sugar industry advocate Margaret Menzell agreed a royal commission was needed but warned the meeting the Australian Banking Association was gearing up for a massive publicity blitz to ward off the establishment of an inquiry.
Nine resolutions were passed by the meeting calling for the establishment of a royal commission, abolition of the arbitrary appointment of receivers by anyone, condemning the actions of government in allowing banks to act with impunity, creation of a development bank for primary and secondary industries and infrastructure, the role of police is to protect the public and then property and forbid the use of police to reinforce property repossessions, restore a grand jury system to deter corporations from engaging in unconscionable and unlawful conduct and restore compliance with Chapter 3 of the Commonwealth Constitution, property to be found disposed of unethically must be restored, the terms of reference include an investigation of the creation of credit by trading banks, a moratorium be immediately imposed on forced property sales.
All resolutions passed unanimously.

LIBERAL GOVERNMENT LEFT WITH EGG ALL OVER ITS FACE
THE CAIRNS POST AND THE ABC HAVE HAD THIS STORY FOR 3 WEEKS BUT WILL NOT TOUCH IT
TROUBLE AHEAD FOR ALL RESIDENTS OF CAPE YORK PENINSULA WITH A NEW INDIGENOUS STATE TO BE CREATED
Cape York Land Council takes control of the Peninsula Development Road on Cape York Peninsula.
Cape York Land Council says the $210 million Mein Deviation road job near Weipa can start
The prospect of Northern Development hailed by the Federal Government as the panacea for northern Australia has been placed on the back foot after the State Government and the Cape York Land Council signed an agreement allowing the Land Council to control the Peninsula Development Road, the main arterial access to Cape York.
The Land Council claims it wants jobs for local community residents but some Cape Traditional Owners, businessmen and pastoralists believe it to be a “greedy land grab for the few at the top of the CYLC” that will not benefit most struggling communities.
There will be more of the traditional CYLC ‘jobs for their boys’ who in most cases are never local indigenous businesses. Richie AhMat, Gerhardt and Noel Pearson are in bed with the big boys and their predictions of jobs for Peninsula indigenous contractors like most of their other failed, expensive schemes will also fail local businesses, contractors and the long-suffering community resident.
The state and federal governments have rolled over to the unrepresentative CYLC yet again. Next comes the new Aboriginal state of Cape York above the 16th Parallel with the TOLL gates set at Laura or Lakeland.
Every local authority in the nation should be terrified about the hijacking of this vital state government-owned road that is the only land access to important northern defence facilities and the major mining town of Weipa.
Meanwhile September is a few days away and the wet season a few months away. Starting such major roadworks near Weipa that should have begun in May will be a disaster for the unlucky contractor, soon to be announced.
And the annual $25 billion Aboriginal industry, taxpayer feeding frenzy continues for CYLC and Balkanu……..
Meetings to discuss Cape York issues to be held soon
A series of meetings about the Penisula Development Road will be held next week across Cape York Peninsula.

It would seem Federal Member for Leichhardt, Warren Entsch has been fence sitting over this issue and continues to ignore the voice of the people. He may have started his own political demise with voter anger reaching boiling point in North Queensland.

Landmark agreement paves way for Peninsula Development Road
Published on Facebook – 29 July 2015
THE Cape York Land Council today signed an important agreement which paves the way for the start of construction on the Mein Deviation and other sections of the Peninsula Development Road, known as the PDR.
Under this agreement, the Queensland Government and Native Title Holders will now begin negotiations to settle an Indigenous Land Use Agreement for the whole of the PDR by the end of 2015. These negotiations follow the lodgment and registration of one of Australia’s largest native title claims earlier in the year, over Cape York.
Chairman of the Cape York Land Council, Mr Richie Ah Mat, said the Department of Transport and Main Roads could now finalise contract arrangements for construction to commence next week.
“There has been a mammoth effort by the Queensland Government and the Cape York Land Council to settle these outstanding matters over the last two months and our meetings over the last two days have endorsed our approach,” he said.
The agreement addresses Indigenous employment, training and business opportunities, cultural heritage clearance processes and environmental considerations.
“On Cape York, where the Indigenous community is battling very high unemployment, high incarceration rates and alcohol and drug abuse, projects such as the PDR are critical in providing opportunity to our mob,” said Mr Ahmat.
“This is a great example of the State Government recognising the Native Title and cultural interests of Traditional Owners to maintain respectful ongoing relationships to carry the PDR to completion.”
Under the agreement, a Traditional Owner steering committee has been established that will guide the settlement of the Indigenous Land Use Agreement with the Queensland Government.
Mr Ahmat said that it was very important for Traditional Owner groups to work together on major linear projects such as the PDR. “An important principle of the Native Title claim has been that Traditional Owners speak for their country,” he said.
“Prior to the settlement of the Indigenous Land Use Agreement, there will need to be further discussions with Traditional Owners from along the road route”.
Southern Kandju and Negotiating committee member, Dion Creek, praised the agreement.
“For the first time, the State Labor Government, Cape York Land Council, and Traditional Owners have respectfully negotiated a single agreement covering the PDR,” he said.
“There can be no longer be any excuse for our people to remain on the sidelines, when it comes to capitalising on investments for the PDR and other road networks throughout Cape York.
Mr Creek said that PDR investments specified in the agreement would be used to increase the capacity of Indigenous people, through the provision of training and employment, enterprise facilitation and the commitment to support local business.
“We have a jobs crisis in Cape York,” he said. “It is a priority we must address
Peter Spencer case funding in limbo
Funding for the Peter Spencer court case appears to be in limbo and possibly could be cut.
Farmer Peter Spencer made the headlines when he sat up a pole on his property on a hunger strike for 52 days in 2009.
He was protesting over his over his right to clear native vegetation on his property in south-east NSW and later began demanding that he be compensated for a loss of carbon credits.
This formed the basis of a court case that went all the way to the High Court, centring around native vegetation and carbon credits, and whether farmers are owed compensation from the Commonwealth acquiring credits from Australian farmers.
Sources close to the Spencer camp say that they have been informed that the fighting fund assistance, previously forthcoming, to back the legal fight against the Commonwealth has been stopped, and they claim they have been left high and dry, just as they are due to go to trial.
But the Australian Farmers Fighting Fund says that’s not accurate.
Chairman of the AFFF, Hugh Nivison, says the fund had only committed to funding the process of legal discovery and it’s now looking at the documents to see if any more assistance is warranted, according to the merits of the evidence.
“It is a complicated issue and we want to have a look at the evidence before we make a decision on where we go to from here,” he said.
