Rally #4. PHOTOS & VIDEOS. #NoAgGag. 8 Aug 2015

 

Around 200 people attended the #NoAgGag Rally on a sunny Saturday at Sydney Town Hall.

There are no winners in ag-gag laws. They undermine the values of democracy, impedes free speech and transparency. 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.

Thank you to our wonderful guest speakers Emmanuel Giuffre (Legal Counsel at Voiceless), Michael Walsh (member of the Animal Justice Party) and Dr Mehreen Faruqi (MP and Animal Welfare spokesperson at NSW Green) for their passion and fight against ag-gag.

We thank all our supporters; in particular, Steven Lewanski, Andy Fawkner and Michael McNally for help out with audio.

Here are some of our favourite photos from the rally. You can see more at Sydney Activism Photography.

The Election

The NSW Election on 28 March 2015 is our chance to vote for a party that is a voice for animals.

Special thanks to guest speakers David Shoebridge (MP, The Greens NSW) and Michael Walsh  (candidate for Newtown, The Animal Justice Party) for sharing their party’s policies on farm animals.

For more information on the each party’s policies and initiatives on animals:

Ag Gag

The ‘Criminal Code Amendment (Animal Protection) Bill 2015’  (also known as ag gag) will criminalise in-depth investigations that expose industry-wide cruelty in factory farms and other industries that use animals for profit. More than ever, we need to be the voice for pigs and other animals.
