Put on a free barbie for your mates

FREE MEAT WEEK (March 24 to 30) calls on everyone to host a barbecue for their mates to celebrate our Aussie farmers and graziers. Our mates in the bush are doing it tough - after having the live cattle export market shut down overnight some of them are now battling the biggest drought in a century. Rubbing salt into their wounds is a national campaign called Meat-Free Week, which is trying to recruit people to vegetarianism. When our farmers and graziers are doing it so tough, that's just un-Australian. FREE MEAT WEEK is a counter-campaign to promote a great Australian industry and to support our great Australian farmers and graziers. Launched by Federal Member for Dawson, George Christensen, and supported by his fellow Nationals MPs, the Cattle Council of Australia, and the Sheepmeat Council of Australia, FREE MEAT WEEK urges you to support the industry that has put food on our table for hundreds of years while looking after your family and friends with a free barbecue. George and the Nationals are kicking it off in Canberra by putting on a barbecue for their mates in parliament - Members, Senators, and the Press Gallery.
