"Corrupt, fraudulent, treasonous."
Those are just a few of the adjectives Wade Northausen uses to describe the people who came up with the Murray Darling Basin Plan.
And those are just the publishable adjectives.
Mr Northausen is the president of grassroots group Southern Basin Communities, and he will be coming to Griffith on April 17 to demand an end to the basin plan and the Water Act 2007.
It comes just after a Pause the Plan rally was held in Griffith on April 4, but this meeting will up the ante significantly.
"There is absolutely no point in talking about pausing the plan; we need to scrap the plan completely," Mr Northausen said.
"If we don't, our communities will die, our farmers will die, and our environment will die."
He claims the MDBP has failed in all of its three stated aims: environmental, economic, and social.
While some have accused the government of water mismanagement or incompetence, Mr Northausen takes it one step further; he insists the major parties are out to deliberately destroy irrigation communities.
That's why he's asking Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove to hold a federal royal commission into what he sees as the corrupt intentions of politicians and bureaucrats behind the basin plan.
"We need everybody to understand that we are being deliberately targeted and destroyed," he said.
He believes the government is trying to pit people against one another: farmers against environmentalists, NSW against South Australia, and northern basin irrigators against southern basin irrigators.
Instead he's trying to get people to point the finger of blame at the major parties, who support a basin plan in some shape or another.
He's hoping he can convince people in Griffith to vote for a minor party or an independent come May 18, when voters head to the polls for the federal election.
The meeting will start from 7pm on April 17 at the Southside Leagues Club.
