    This strike will affect my family however, truckies have allowed themselves to be pushed around by big business and politicians for far too long. When I was involved in major party politics, I pushed the need to look after our truckies, only to be told, “that’s not where the money comes from.”

    Well, truckies might not be donating loads of money to the political parties but they sure are helping with stocking the food shelves.

    Yes i will be parking up , and i agree with this stoppage as long as it is done as first indercated that we park our trucks up and stay at home.this was the original plan decieded at the BP Archerfield in Brisbane QLD,I feel this is the only way to carry out this stoppage I feel there NO blockades off any fuel depots No convoys as doing these things would only put the public and police offside which we don’t want to happen also the media would have a field day by these actions which would only work against us .

    Thank you John Duffy
