For the last two years, the Government has been dragging its feet while the Wilmar, a foreign multinational, holds the sugar cane growers of Queensland hostage.
I have spoken to the Prime Minister about this, I've arranged meetings between the cane growers and the Government, I've even offered to fly to Singapore to speak with Wilmar executives. The Government has said to the cane growers and I that they would do something but NOTHING has been done!
This morning I told the Government that they need to get their priorities in order and deal with this! Unless they follow through and stop this foreign multinational from exploiting Australian businesses we will be abstaining any votes on legislation.
What is more, Barnaby Joyce has failed on his commitment to growers and should come clean on why he and the National Party refuse to help farmers in this country.
Barnaby put more effort and energy into keeping Pistol & Boo out of the country than what he’s put into holding big business, banks, multinationals and tree huggers with green shirts to account. This sounds more "bat poo crazy” to me.
"G’day, I’m Yane. I’m a Broome local and have lived here all my life. The Kimberley is a special part of Australia and I’m lucky enough to to be able to capture its beauty throughout the different seasons, of which there are only really two - wet and dry. If you get the chance to visit, one of my favourite places is the Dampier Peninsula. It's a photographer's paradise and only a couple of hours drive up the road from Broome." - Yane Sotiroski Photography

In 2015, #60Mins met five extraordinary children who showed bravery far beyond their years. These young heroes saved their mother’s life from an armed intruder, but what made this story even more heartbreaking is the intruder was their father.
This week it was announced that Rachel Moore’s four eldest children will receive Australian Bravery Awards later this year. Jayden, 17, and Cameron, now 15, will be presented the Star of Courage for selflessly putting themselves in jeopardy to protect the lives of others. | Watch their FULL STORY here: bit.ly/2g9XW5K
