Land, Water, Food, Shelter - beyond this all issues are really secondary. We baulk at saying there should be less foreign ownership of our land, so we dont sound parochial. But in regional areas where I grew up, you can see what is happening and it is scary. Companies from countries like Brazil and China buy big blocks of land just under the 'reveiwable' price, so the Foreign Investment Reveiw Board doesnt get a say. Australian farmers can't afford the costs of production, and water trading has made the water worth more than the land or the food, so some sell the water rights to someone who on-sells for more, but lets the orchards die and the land go to salt. Wonderful swathes of locally grown peaches, oranges, vegetables, apples are left to rot, in a world with great hunger, and where food security should be of concern. Farmers plant rice crops - and Australian grain growers use some of the best science based, researched and intelligent practices in the world - but mid way through a gorwing cycles, State Water pulls the irrigation water and the crops die - without compensation! Protect our resources, and support our regional communities and farmers to grow our food, and feed the rest of the world too. Give everyone affordable housing, and protect our environment. The Greens and the Farmers are really both custodians and stewards of our future.
