Peter Spencer: Finally will present his case

NSW farmer Peter Spencer outside the High Court, Canberra
Peter Spencer will finally be allowed to comprehensively present his case to the court on the 24th November after over six years of overcoming many obstacles. If successful the case will set a precedent to make governments of all descriptions to think twice before the arbitrarily taking property rights

The case centres around the right of the Australian Commonwealth to acquire carbon credits from farm land, without compensating the farmers, or landholders. The 2010 Senate Inquiry found that the carbon credits available from the various States’ Vegetation Management acts were used by the Commonwealth to meet the Kyoto protocol.

Peter Spencer has been out of the media for some time as a result of a media blackout imposed by the NFF’s Australian Farmer’s Fighting Fund which was for a time funding him. Now with the end in sight the AFFF has withdrawn their funding.
