• PROPOSED AG GAG LAWS FOR NSW

    24th August 2015

    Proposed Ag Gag laws for NSW.

    A bill which punishes those who expose animal cruelty and protects those who participate in animal cruelty.  The proposed Farm Surveillance Bill impedes on free speech and the tramples the presumption of innocent until proven guilty.

    The very department that is meant to protect animal welfare is the same department wanting to protect intensive farming practices and animal exploitation.

  • MYER PROTEST AGAINST HORSE RACING

    On Saturday I attended and spoke out in support of the Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses and their continued campaign against MYER’s sponsorship of the cruel sport of horse racing.

    Latest research revealed on ABC’s Catalyst program shows that the horses skin tissue and nervous systems are actually more highly receptive of pain than ours.  Despite this, thoroughbred racehorses are whipped violently in order to run faster in a sport based on cruelty, suffering and greed.

  • GREY2K MEETING TO DISCUSS GREYHOUND INDUSTRY SYSTEMIC CRUELTY

    17th July 2015

    I had an insightful and inspiring meeting with Christine and Carey from GREY2K USA and Animal Liberation NSW.  We spoke of their success, strategies and the lessons they learnt whilst fighting to end the greyhound industry across the United States.

    The ongoing inquiry into the systematic cruelty and torture inflicted on both dogs and small animals used for live baiting shows that this industry cannot be trusted.  It cannot be cleaned up. GREY2K have proved that through multifaceted campaigns, an end to the greyhound industry is achievable.

    Great work guys!
