Convoy passes through Ingham



Charters Towers showed great support for Convoy 2 (the colour pink), there were 10 mustering choppers in arrow formation at the head of 7klm of vehicles. Shops also showed there support with pink balloons and streamers, as well as the people that couldn't join the convoy, lining the streets, and waving Aussie flags. If you look closely at the video you will see the other choppers in the sky.

The Convoy of No Confidence started as a truckies protest against the carbon tax but has grown into a mass assembly of people who feel they have lost their voice on issues from wasted tax money, asylum seekers, pink batts, imported fruit and the temporary ban on live exports. Cairns News.

Can this convoy drive democratic change?
"I think the government has been compromised by the fact that it's not governing in its own right," he added, referring to the Greens and independents who helped deliver minority government 12 months ago.

Actually seen the convoy on channel 9 news last night so the message must be getting through at last :-).

Hi Windsmoke,
Yes I saw a bit on TV last night as well, it's good to see, but there was nothing in the Brisbane paper, they stayed well away from it, there was a report in the Brisbane Times, but that's not a main stream paper. But a lot of other papers all around the country has written articles, it has even been mention in a lot of o/seas papers as well.

I hope they make one hell of an impact on Canberra when they arrive, I hope it's a huge message.
