for sale, but to whom and for how much?
more pertinent question may be how much has been sold, but not even the
government or the opposition have any idea as to the answer to such an
important question, yet they represent our nation on our behalf, or do they?
if we dare ask the most pertinent question, how much of Australia has been sold? The frightening answer is not only that nobody
knows, but more so, why do they not care?
government admit there will be no answer to this question until 2017, and even
then it will be provided by census, not lands title, so even then we will not
know the truth, but more so we will endure more government spin that all will be fine.
laws to protect our food bowl and its prime holdings simply do not exist, and
both Labor and Liberal back foreign investment, so right now while bus loads of
Chinese search South Australia to buy up our best land holdings and water entitlements,
we the people will continue to be kept in the Dark.
"Do any think that foreign investors are interested in our nations future or even its heritage?"
recent years, more so in recent months, I have been investigation foreign buy
up of our land and resources, and the truth goes beyond frightening.
interests own more than 60% of our sugar milling, near 50% of meat, and 60% of
our dairy, but these staggering facts do not include the buying of the farms, water entitlements and the land itself, these figures only relate to Australian Industries.
reports state the horrifying truth; “There is no systematic source of data on
foreign ownership of agribusiness companies” and having just returned from our
Riverland district, it has become apparent just to ensure no one notices, multi
title properties and being sold individually to ensure their sales receive no
scrutiny in any event.
largest producers in our state are now being brought up, yet are not listed as
being for sale, so not only is there no scrutiny, Australian people do not even
have the opportunity to place a bid,
facts prove by the time the government decide it worthy to investigate, our
fine nation could have changed hands, without a single shot being fired.
Foreign Investment Review board (FIRB) even lists help desks in foreign companies,
and while travelling overseas on business, I have experienced that it is usual
to see media advertising “Come buy Australia”, yet we as Australians cannot go
to any of these countries and invest in property that they call “National interests”, so
why in the hell are we letting them buy our strategic infrastructure?
under $244 million dollars as a purchase price under FIRB policy does not
attract even a watchful eye, yet just to be sure, foreign interests are breaking up multi
title land holdings to cover up the full inpact.
of FIRB’s thresholds are as high as 1062 million, yet the will of the people
would easily be “$1 as a threshold”, what sovereign nation or its people would
allow the sale of their very own country’s national interests and long term
food security, not a true representative of the people of in fact their nations
indexed monetary thresholds for 2012 are $244 million and $1062 million. The
developed non-residential commercial real estate (not heritage listed) is also
now indexed and for 2012 is $53 million. For current monetary thresholds see monetary thresholds.” (Quote from previous article by Mark Aldridge)
just worry as concerned citizens as to how much has already been sold, but
worry most about which land has been sold, because foreign governments are not
here to move in, they want our prime land only, that land that also carries
with its purchase our precious water, make no mistake “They want our best land,
our water, our food and our fisheries” says Mark
have written about this issue in the past, organised protests, online
petitions, and nothing has changed, every moment of every day, more of our
vital assets are being sold.
The workers on these farms personal accounts
offer a terrifying insight, beyond the loss of their job security, seems those travelling
our country buying up our best land, brag they have trillions to spend, and
have no interest in short term profits, for them it is about their respective nation’s
"Land sales in the NT account
for a figure now exceeding 30% of foriegn Land ownership, but exactly how much of the
NT land is productive? "
While studying ABS figures, we are confronted with
grazing and grain farming lumped into one figure, yet the value of Grain farming
land is of higher value than that of grazing, so transparency simply is not on
“When we study beyond farms, water and
vital infrastructure to the residential issue, In December 2008, the Australian
Federal Government announced policy and administrative changes to screening
arrangements for foreign investors in Australian real estate, meaning it has
been easier for overseas purchasers to buy even residential property here since
what do we do, if we vote Labor, the sale continues, if we vote liberal, their
latest report on foreign investment from a couple of months ago, also supports
foreign investment, the electoral act, written by these morons, ensures we have
to preference them, and their 2 party counting of the votes, means one of them
will again be elected, so until we stand united against the sale of our
country, using people power in numbers, and I mean at least one in 20, over 1
million people protesting, the sale will continue and our forefathers will continue turning in their graves.
writing letters to your supposed representatives, and keep the pressure on, but
truth is we have to do much more than that, and we have to do it yesterday, so
if the opportunity arises, stand up...watch this space
