Ag-gag laws are designed to deter activists and journalists from documenting the suffering of animals in factory farms. In June 2015, a Senate Committee recommended that WA Senator Chris Black’s Criminal Code Amendment (Animal Protection) Bill be passed with a minor change.

If passed, it means that investigators of animal cruelty will be made criminals while the perpetrators of that cruelty will be protected. It will obscure consumers’ understanding of where their food comes from.

Join us to learn more about ag-gag and oppose this backward Bill. A short Q&A session will follow the speeches.

 Guest speakers:

  1. Emmanuel Giuffre, Legal Counsel at Voiceless
  2. Michael Walsh, member of the Animal Justice Party
  3. Dr Mehreen Faruqi, MP and Animal Welfare spokesperson at NSW Greens
