PLOUGH IT BACK INTO THE GROUND IN FAVOUR OF CHEAP IMPORTS

On March 24th a local newspaper ran an article entitled "Beat That Its Free". The article went on to say that Dick Smith will be giving away $100,000 worth of prime Australian grown Beetroot in a show of support for Australian farmers being priced out of our supermarkets.

An Australian farmer from the Cowra Valley explained to Dick Smith that his entire crop was about to be ploughed back into the ground as he was unable to sell the crop. The farmer stated that Australians simply want the cheap stuff from China.

Dick Smith purchased the crop, had it canned and went to both Coles and Woolworths and offered to sell it at cost price, 90 cents per can, the supermarkets werent interested and stated that Aldi sell the product for 75c per can and they have to compete with their prices.

The Supermarkets believe that Australians will choose the cheaper imported product over anything from Australian farmers. Dick Smith arranged the give away as an opportunity for Australians to inform the media that they were prepared to support Australian Farmers. Mr Smith went onto say that the farmer had since had to plough his adjoining Beetroot crop back into the ground.

One billion people around the world are malnourished yet we are ploughing our crops back into the ground thanks to UN Globalist international trade policies that will place at risk Australian exports if we fail to take these cheap imported goods, sounds like blackmail and we continue to lose strategically important industries in all sectors due to these Globalist free trade scams, I doubt that any federal government will have the courage to stand up to the Globalists and block these imports to protect local industries.

Hi Stephan,

Do you have a bit more info on where to get the correct app for the iphone for the barcodes?

Stephen Cox said:

May I suggest if you have an Android Smartphone of one of those God Awfull IPhone thing's download a Barcode scanning software package then you can scan the Barcodes on the packaging and it will tell you exactly where it comes from even if the Labeling doesn't.

 

As for China and their labor Green Stooges out here definately boycott anything from there as it is all substandard garbage and in many cases toxic.

The Chinese practice of destroying local opposition happens worldwide,In Italy they dumped womens Brassiers on the Italian market at a price of 50 Cents a dozen a few years back destroying much of the manufacturing base ,Even in places such as Mexico you will hear the phrase from manufacturers,farmers and Retailers "Bloody Chinese",There is a book by an Ancient Chinese Philosopher "The Art of War" by Tsung Tszu and by war they actually include Economic warfare,It is Economic War that we are facing and we need to fight back.

Target Coalition members and make them accountable,Labor are a waste of time and gone anyhow,Force State Governments to instigate stringent safety and Quality standards that will  stop the chinese dead in their tracks as they do not know the  meaning of the word.

So be prepared to pay a bit extra to support our local produce.  What a shame we're not more patriotic (ie prepared to really support our own) but who wants to pay 3x the price for something, when we can get an equivalent (eg homebrand) for half the price.

But yes, the Chinese rubbish drives me mad.   And I don't/won't eat stuff from Thailand.

How can we trust the AusBuy and how often are they updating their booklets?
