Support Fair Laws for Farmers.
Pledge to the Queensland Farmers Fighting Fund
The funds raised from the Queensland Farmers Fighting Fund will go towards the Fair Laws for Farmers campaign which aims to give landholders the opportunity to take action and to drive home the message that tougher vegetation management restrictions will do more harm than good.
The Palaszczuk Government showed they were no Friend of Ag on March 17 by introducing the Vegetation Management (Reinstatement) and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2016 into Parliament.
These laws have horrific consequences for Queensland producers and their ability to manage their vegetation effectively.
The Fighting Fund will go towards funding billboards in Brisbane and other regional cities which urge consumers to support Fair Laws for Farmers.
The funds will also go towards mailing flyers to key electorates and other various regional specific advertising.
The campaign is about highlighting to all Queenslanders that farmers just want a fair go, that for agriculture to grow and create jobs we need sensible land management laws and that farmers are the true environmentalists.
We are looking to get our message out to as many people as possible in Brisbane and in regional centres, and what we can do will be determined by how much we can raise through this fighting fund.
In addition to contributing to the fighting fund, farmers can also get involved on social media using the hashtag #FairLaws4Farmers.
