VIDEO: Protesters make their voices heard at Can the Plan rally

By Country News

Protesters from across the region are making their voice heard at Parliament House in Canberra.

Hundreds have made their way to the capital city to demand politicians end the Murray-Darling Basin Plan.

Rally co-organiser and chair of Speak Up Campaign, Shelley Scoullar,  said the Basin Plan had “failed on every level”.

However, she said too many politicians – especially those in Government – refuse to acknowledge the destruction from the Basin Plan in its current format.

Rally organisers have scheduled meetings with federal Water Minister David Littleproud, Environment Minister Sussan Ley and NSW Nationals Senator Perin Davey to discuss their concerns and present their solutions.
