STATEMENT OF INTENT
“Forward Action to Bridge the City-Bush Divide”
We are a grassroots, not for profit, movement of individuals and families across our nation, that hold a collective concern about the increasing divide between food and fibre consumers, and primary producers and associated industries.
Our movement aims to bridge this divide by inspiring trustworthy communication channels and real-world connections that will clearly but respectfully separate facts from fiction.
We will not take a backward step in defending our families, businesses, workers, and communities.
Where we see inaccurate or misleading allegations masquerading as fact, we will unapologetically take a public stand – in whatever method is deemed appropriate - to correct the record and defend the truth.
We are not aligned politically, however will be active in the political sphere, in promoting and supporting good policies and outcomes for our people. In doing this we will be working with a diverse range of organisations, groups, and parties.
Our community of people – and the generations of provincial families that have fed and supplied our nation - are at the heart of our endeavours
Why do we need to exist?
"It's politics that got us into this mess... it'll be politics that gets us out"
We need you, as the consumers and producers, to rally behind us to keep the produce on our shelves Clean, Green and Local.
If we don't produce it, someone else will, and we can assure you, it won't be to the standard we have set ourselves.
