"New England, we must vote for climate" - farmer video against mines

Barnaby Joyce has faced much critisism over his ineffectual stand against coal mining, particularly in his electorate of New England where the Shenhua coal mine is planned.

New South Wales farmer of the year has released a video challenging Barnaby on this and is raising money to get it online in New England and see by as many people in the electorate as possible before this Saturday's poll.

You can contribute here to help with this.

Building new coal mines is insanity, let alone in the middle of prime farmland.
In the argy bargy of election campaigns, it’s stories like Kirrily’s that can get people’s attention. Help us make sure action on climate change is front of mind this Saturday in New England. 

The Liverpool Plains is the food bowl of NSW. Kirrily, is the NSW Farmer of the Year and is passionate about protecting the land she loves from coal and gas mining that fuels dangerous global warming. 

We want to put this video on the Facebook news feeds of every New England voter to make sure they know that Barnaby Joyce has failed to protect the land they love. Please chip in to make this video go viral in New England. 

For every $24 we raise, we can get it in front of 1500 New England voters. Contribute here, AYCC
