COMMENT: Australian agriculture is under assault like never before.

An ever-growing list of far-left agitator groups are mounting blockades, spreading false information, invading our homes and attempting to destroy the future of our businesses, families and communities.

We face a constant barrage from fake greens and environmental terrorist groups who fail to recognise that Australia provides the cleanest and greenest food and fibre in the world.

Where these extreme green groups were once political outsiders – waving banners, making noise and getting arrested – we now see groups such as the World Wildlife Fund, PETA and Animals Australia sitting at the policy table. Groups that have been caught out funding animal abusers for their own gain.

The 2019 Federal election will be a battleground election. This election will expose the city – bush divide like never before.

Labor and the Greens are running on election promises that will weaken our productivity, tie up our businesses in red and green tape, and restrict our ability to continue growing the world's most sustainable produce.

Australia leads the world in agricultural technology and innovation. A fact that fails to get a mention by the ag bashers who reside where the black-throated finch was once abundant, alongside koalas and a myriad of other native animals.

Whether you farm, fish or forage, this is an election where your way of life is under threat.

Joining a genuine grassroots movement that takes the battle from the farm gate to the city plate is the greatest weapon rural industry has to defend ourselves against the onslaught of lies, mistruths and fake news spread by extreme green groups, politicians and certain sections of the media.

The Green Shirts Movement was launched in June last year with the ambition of reclaiming the colour green from the extreme environmental groups and 'fake greens' who have strangled primary industry for decades.

We must stand together to defend the truth about Australian food and fibre producers or face ongoing persecution at the hands of fake green policy makers. - Bryson Head, campaign manager, Green Shirts Movement

Led by national coordinator and former State of Origin prop Marty Bella, the Green Shirts Movement is a grassroots movement of individuals that are passionate about the future of Australian agriculture.

In the past six months we have seen agriculture groups across our nation take up the cause and proudly display their green shirts at protest rallies, saleyards and even in the cities.

If you care about the quality of produce on your plate as well as those who worked to deliver it to you then the Green Shirts Movement wants to hear from you.

We are asking you all to join us for the next step, by linking arms in this battle against the fake greens.

We must stand together to defend the truth about Australian food and fibre producers or face ongoing persecution at the hands of fake green policy makers.

Send the latte-sippers a message this federal election by joining our grassroots movement and becoming active in the fight to protect our way of life.

It is a simple but powerful step to make – join our movement, throw on a green shirt and stand up for Aussie farmers and fishermen.

The time is now or never, to take a stand for Australia’s proud, clean and green rural industry.

- Bryson Head is the campaign manager for the Green Shirts Movement.
