THE Salmon Gums farmer who dumped seven tonnes of grain near WA Premier Colin Barnett's office last week said he had received positive feedback from a wide cross-section of the farming community.
Greg Kenney, a member of the Rural Action Movement (RAM), said the protest dump was made to persuade the State Government to re-think its $7.8 million assistance package and match the $60m funding announcement by the Federal Government.
Mr Kenney said there had been no feedback from the government since the event.
At the time Mr Barnett said he was unphased by the protest.
Mr Kenney said he had been in contact with Mr Barnett before the government's assistance package announcement and had tried to convene a meeting with him after the protest.
"After the protest I rang to talk to his (Mr Barnett's) adviser, the same one we had spoken to before and haven't heard from him," Mr Kenney said.
"If he doesn't want to talk to us then that is fine, but I'd rather talk to people than protest."
In response to Mr Barnett's labelling RAM "minority fringe", Mr Kenney said it was the message behind the protest that was important.
"It really doesn't matter if it is RAM, as a fringe group or whether it is Joe Blow that protests," he said.
"It was about the fact that the bush is in trouble.
"There is a lot of debt and some of it is not being serviced and there are issues with foreclosures.
"The debt that is being serviced is probably unmanageable in the long term and that is the crisis that is affecting the bush at the moment."
When asked if RAM had any further plans for protest action, Mr Kenney admitted that although he had not contacted WA National Party leader Brendan Grylls yet, there were plans in the works.
"I think the National Party need a wake-up call and I am thinking about what our next action will be," he said.
