This petition had 4,747 supporters
My name is Glenn Lazarus. I am a proud Australian, Senator for Queensland and the Leader of the Glenn Lazarus Team.
I need your HELP to STOP the sale of Australia's largest beef producer and private landholding, S. Kidman and Co, to the CHINESE and to keep the properties in Australian hands.
I would like your support to CALL on the Turnbull Government:
. To REJECT the sale to the CHINESE
. Do this BEFORE the Federal Election; and
. Work with Australian bidders to purchase the properties.
Please 'SIGN' this petition.
The 'SELL OFF' of Australia MUST stop!
S. Kidman and Co, Australia's largest beef producer and biggest private landholding, which includes the world's largest cattle station, is up for sale and the Chinese are the preferred buyers.
The sale to the Chinese is subject to approval by the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB). However, the Turnbull Government has 'extended' the decision period beyond the Federal election date of 2 July 2016. This CAN NOT be allowed to happen!
Australian icon, Lindsay Fox's family want to purchase the properties to keep them in Australian hands.
The properties which are located in Western Australia, South Australia, Queensland and the Northern Territory, are collectively bigger in land mass than the state of Tasmania.
The properties include a herd of 185,000 cattle, a cattle feedlot, cattle stations, pastoral leases covering 101,000 square kilometres and produce grass-fed beef for export to Japan, the USA and South East Asia.
The company was founded by Sir Sidney Kidman in 1899 and has been in the hands of family members for over 100 years. The family shareholders are Australia's largest private landholders. The sale to the Chinese must be stopped on 'national interest' grounds.
Australia is open for business BUT we are NOT for SALE. We are open to foreign investment which creates Australian jobs for Australian workers, but this must not be dependent on the sale of our country. If we do not OWN our LAND, we do not OWN our FUTURE.
