The push by Greens and Government over decades to remove farmers from the land has been a puzzle to farming families of Australia struggling to produce food for your table under engineered unworkable legislation hurdles installed that now have closed around 60% of our primary producers over the last 10 years.
With pastures near cleared of farmers the curtains opens on a stage of salvation revealing the new kids on the block. Corporate producer spin-doctors strutting the food bowl catwalk in Melbourne on April 18 called, a “Global Forum”, organised by Visy, The Australian newspaper, and The Wall Street Journal, a loaded dice.
To remove problems of questions being asked from cash strapped farmers at this forum, tickets are priced at $720 each for the day.
Jock Laurie, president of the National Farmers Association, is the token representative however lack of faith in the association, which only about one third of farmers on the land are members, and is on the NSW government payroll that taints his allegiance to rural Australia.
This forum must be of major concern to those family farmers left on the land across the nation as the hidden agenda starts to unfold.
The involvement of “Visy”, enjoying the giant side of packaging manufacture to most produce in Australia, indicates the interest of Executive Chairman Anthony Pratt’s promoting this forum.
A Glance at Visy
Let us take a walk through the façade of Visy corporation’s record so you can make no mistake from this sample as to who they are, how they do business.
Chairman Richard Pratt (Anthony’s father) organised with NSW Premier Bob Carr to set in place government legislation for his company, this is now “Visy Facillitation Act of 1997″ – “A corporation with it’s own government legislated act?”.
In March 2006 former Premier of New South Wales Bob Carr had accepted a consultancy to advise Visy on recycling.
In April 2000 Visyboard and competitor Amcor entered into a cartel to fix corrugated fiberboard packaging price fixing and reduce competition for each others customers. Visy Richard Pratt found guilty and a settlement to some 1000 customers between the two companies was around $97 Million. Pratt’s Visy Group was fined a record $33 Million.
Visy packaging company is allegedly using the Hells Angels to collect bad debts and act as “problem solvers”. Senior police sources told the Herald Sun police intelligence files have recorded links between Visy and the notorious bikie gang, and detectives are monitoring the connection.
Rogers also dined with senior Visy managers just before going to prison.
In 2007, SOS-NEWS published an E-book –“The Ratt Pack” that exposes Visy-Amcor case, environment Greens control of Bob Brown and Peter Garrett, the Visy act of parliament in detail, Bob Carr and the Pratt way of business. Download free [HERE]
Anthony Pratt (pictured), like his father Richard, require to be “Seen Green” as Visy cannot survive without endorsing environmental goals they claim to be implementing while financing the right organisations with substantial donations and holding tight to their NSW act of parliament.
Mr Pratt is a member of Climate Group a leading international environmental organisation founded by former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
