The role farmers play in our community and society providing food and fibre is absolutely vital.

The drought in Queensland and throughout Australia is one of the greatest collective issues affecting our society.

That is why the Federal LNP Coalition has invested $7 billion on drought support for farmers and their communities. This money includes immediate relief as well as a $5 billion future drought fund designed to reinvest into to water infrastructure to drought proof the country.

Unfortunately Qld Labor has budgeted a reprehensible $50 million cut to drought funding at a time when communities are at breaking point and towns are running dry.

That is why the LNP has launched a petition calling on Annastacia Palaszczuk to reverse her $50 million in cuts to essential subsidies used by farmers in droughts to feed their starving livestock.

Instead of providing more money for Queensland farmers Annastacia Palaszczuk is trying to politicise drought by criticising Federal support while cutting state support. This is the height of hypocrisy.

Queenslanders need to come together to send Annastacia Palaszczuk and her Labor Government a message that cutting drought support to farmers and their communities is completely unacceptable.

Signing this petition is the best shot Queenslanders have in getting Annastacia Palaszczuk to reverse her heartless drought support cuts to farmers.
