An open letter to the Australian People - by Dr David Pascoe - how corporate terrorism is dispossessing Oz farmers

How Australian farmers, especially in Queensland, are living conditions akin to those of the 1930s Great Depression, victims of what has been called, "corporate terrorism". This article has been republished from Dr David Pascoe's facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/OVHRepro/timeline. It describes the scale of dispossession by banks of farmers who are unable to turn the kind of profit that mines and realtors can. It warns of how we are at two minutes to midnight in losing ownership and the ability to produce food on Australia's farms. On this facebook page there are many corroborating tales of suicide and hardship, of meetings and activism. We are republishing this on candobetter.net because Dr Pascoe appears to be leading an important reaction and offensive for Australians against the banks, the mines, the mass media, and to be calling our rotten politicians into question. This article was publicised by Alan Jones on his radio show of December 9, 2014 (to which cdb was alerted by Daisy Uriad), and he also interviewed Australian treasurer, Joe Hockey, who showed little capacity to grasp the seriousness of the problem.
