Time to stand up for rural Australia

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.

– excerpt from “My Country” by Dorothea Mackellar

Dorothea Mackellar was too polite. When it comes to Australia’s fickle seasons, Mother Nature has always had a crabby streak but, these days, the old hag has become nothing short of vicious.

Maybe we’re partly to blame for relentlessly blowing our own foul emissions up her skirts. Whatever the cause, things have changed. This is different. And while I like to think of myself as a resourceful and resilient (aka “bloody stubborn”) type, this is too big to go it alone. We need to work together.

That’s why I joined Farmers for Climate Action and agreed to face the cameras for this ad, which went live last night.

Thousands of Australians are backing Farmers for Climate Action. Will you join us to help stand up for rural Australia?

  1. Good on you Marian, fully support you, and think your ‘part played’ has more impact because you have your family standing beside you. Have shared and donated.

  2. I joined this group last year and am so impressed with what they are doing. Great that you are on board Marian! Terrific ad, hopefully the pollies start to realise the worth of all primary producers (land custodians).
