International group of strikers with banners, defending animal rights

We in Agriculture, Fishing, and associated industries are currently experiencing a huge and unprecedented onslaught from the Greenie Left environmental and faux animal rights movements and their “glove puppets” in government. These glove puppets use us as cannon fodder to curry favour with the inner urban greenie fringe and the innocently misguided people who cannot see through their deceit.

The Green Shirts Movement, as a fledgling group, has been trying to fight back as hard as we can. We are growing, but any battle we face requires resource.

For some time now, I have seen that as producers and people of the land, we are continually trying to repel attacks and worse we are very slow to retaliate. We need to be launching our own pre-emptive strikes and have the information at hand to punch back immediately should any attack occur.

For that, we need to have, as an entire group of associated industries and communities, a group – media/research taskforce – dedicated wholly and solely to gathering and storing information and facts not only about us but about our enemies.

They need to be able to point out the lies and refute them with incontrovertible fact. This needs to be done on both mainstream and social media.

I was recently told that there are 72 representative bodies in Ag. Surely, with the current idealistic onslaught, if it has been thought that such a taskforce was not needed, it is now. The sheer weight of propaganda our enemies put out, will convert innocent people to their cause if theirs is the only information out there.

I am not the first to think of this – others have before me, but it has withered on the vine. Protestations about how such a group could cater for the breadth of the industry are totally invalid. Why? BECAUSE IT MUST. It is time to forget your own little pet area and realise that this is an attack on us all. The fact that it differs slightly depending on the sector that is being focussed on, does not change the fact that we are all in the firing line in some way or another.

It is time to start getting together and showing a united front. Those of us who place their personal pride before the survival of our way of life are worse than our enemies as they sow discord in our ranks.

So here is the Recipe:
*Get over ourselves – pride, self-interest, short term gratification.
*Forget petty grievance
*Focus on the outcome
*Band together and forge an alliance.
*Aim at the enemy, not just others like us whom we do not agree 100% with.
*DEMAND this of our elected politicians and representative bodies.

If we do not do these things, then our small wins will be nothing more than getting the best chair on the Titanic.

This is the Green Shirts Movement Credo. We invite you all to share it with us for the good of our business and families – and whether they see it or not – the Nation!

Get involved in our movement!

It’s time to make a difference. You can help as little or as much as you like. Every little bit counts.

WE'RE TAKING ACTION! CAN YOU HELP?

The Green Shirt Movement need your help to take action on matters that affect both regional and city Australians. 
It does not take a lot of time or money to assist, simply learn about our campaigns and sign the petition or donate.
Remember that we are stronger in numbers!

DONATION DISCLAIMER

Green Shirts Movement Australia (GSM) is a not-for-profit organisation campaigning to ensure that the grassroots Australia is represented and governed by good people and good policy.

GSM is not a deductible gift recipient (DGR) organisation or fund that registers to receive tax deductible gifts, nor is it a registered political party under State or Federal legislation. Therefore, contributions are not deductible for income tax purposes.

To help us continue to be the voice for rural, regional and reasonable people we raise money through donations help pay for things like advertising, billboards, print advertisements and representing your voice to governments at all levels.

We are NOT apolitical – we are very political – however we are NOT party aligned. We expect and will support GOOD PEOPLE and GOOD POLICY, no matter from whence we find it. We will not blindly attach ourselves to any political party. We expect parties to put themselves SECOND to the welfare of the people they purport to represent. We are driven by you. As political parties are abandoning the grassroots, we will fill that void. We will give our all to ensure policy is driven from the grassroots up, and not inflicted on us from those that feel they are our betters.

Your donation makes our movement stronger and strengthen your voice.

DONATIONS POLICY

By donating to Green Shirts, donors confirm that:

The individual or entity making the donation is not a Foreign Donor, as defined by the Commonwealth Electoral Act (1918).
The funds they are donating are not being provided to them by another person or entity for the purposes of making their contribution.

Persons or entities are required to register as a political campaigner when:

As such, if Green Shirts Movement Australia’s expenditure reaches such levels, we are obliged under the Commonwealth Electoral Act to disclose to the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) cumulative donations of $14,500 or more in a financial year. The AEC will publish these reports on its website.

QLD ELECTION GIFT PROVISIONS

The funds they are donating are not being provided to them by another person or entity for the purposes of making their contribution.

The payment is not made by or on behalf of a ‘prohibited donor’ (being a ‘property developer’), or a ‘close associate’ of a ‘prohibited donor’ as defined by the Electoral Commission Queensland.
By law, donors who contribute an amount of $1,000 or more in aggregate are required to be disclosed to the Electoral Commission Queensland.
