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.
