HEMP Party Media Release

In 2014, 128,000 Australian citizens will be deprived of a well-recognised medicine ‘scientifically proven’ to relive their pain. 128,000 is the number of cancer patients that the Cancer Council Australia has calculated to be affected by cancer in Australia by the end of this year(1).

    Business as usual!
    Our Australian Government and their subsidiaries of States are merely a pretentious idiom of Corporations….. the now controlling influence in most government decisions that effect their bottom line and a carefree attitude of what is good for the people of Australia
    We now live in a Corporate world… our Governments are registered in Washington DC as Corporations and when they are sworn in dedicate their allegiance to the Crown which is London and controlled by the International Bankers….. please watch a swearing in ceremony (YouTube) of these Corporate Creeps!

    Is there any wonder now that our Corporate Governments would support Corporatism.
    The Corporate Rockefella’s and their massive control of the oil industry forced into Law what is called ‘Allopathic Medicine’ and through their media control constructed this maverick medicine into law.
    For thousands of years man used natural medicines but this was all changed by this ‘alternative construct’ that was not medicine but profit!
    Business as usual!….. Gus
