Four intelligent and courageous Queensland women talk to Alan Jones about their experiences dealing with coal or coal seam gas companies and the impact this has on their families and communities.
Candidates from the seat of Ashgrove, including LNP leader Campbell Newman and former Labor Environment Minister Kate Jones, will be asked to give their responses to Lock the Gate telling us what they would do to control the irresponsible impacts of mining and coal seam gas.
This will be a combination of the country coming to the city, discussion about coal and gas as well as members of Lock The Gate Alliance taking action in the city by throwing their hats down.
QLD STATE ELECTION
The Katter Australia Party and the Queensland Greens will have agreed to attend the Forum and will have an opportunity outline their policies and commitments.
BEFORE THE FOOD SECURITY FORUM
The farmers will be having a billy tea at Ashgrove prior to the Forum and will be throwing their hats down to express how they have been treated by the LNP.
AFTER THE FOOD SECURITY FORUM
After the Food Security Forum everyone will march to the Executive Building to send a clear message to the Government who has enabled the current policies.
