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.
All proceeds from the raffle and other fundraising will go towards campaigns to educate the community on the plight of pigs in the production of our food, and supporting animal rescue sanctuaries in NSW.
Good luck everyone, and thank you for your support!
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.
