• SOUTH COAST ANIMAL ADVOCATES AND MARCH FOR THE MILLIONS

    21st July 2016

    It is so energising to witness and be a part of the positive growth of animal advocacy and activism across NSW. This weekend I am lucky enough to be representing the Animal Justice Party across the NSW community in our united quest to improve the lives for all animals.

    Saturday, 23rd of July sees me speaking at the official launch of South Coast Animal Advocates group in Batemans Bay NSW.

    The South Coast Animal Advocates was originally formed as a Facebook page as part of World Animal Protection’s campaign to end live export. Since late last year, the group has become more than an online presence, and has attracted members who have been meeting regularly.

    One of the aims of the group is to be a voice for all animals by advocating animal protection to all members of parliament, particularly our local members for federal and state governments, other political candidates, and local councils.

    Other guest speakers include Dr Bidda Jones (Chief Science and Strategy Officer at RSPCA Australia), and Dr Lynn Simpson (former vet on board live export ships, as recently featured on ABC’s 7.30).

    Sunday, 24th July, I along with many others will walk together to pay our respects to the millions of racing greyhounds who have died in this cruel industry. We will also celebrate NSW Premier Mike Baird’s proposal to legislate the end of greyhound racing in NSW. The March for the Murdered Millions is a nationwide event and for more information please see the Facebook event page.

    The ban is not over the line yet, industry is spending tens of thousands of dollars per month not on greyhound welfare but on professional lobby groups, media spin and propaganda gurus. We MUST show the government how much we support the ban, we must support the brave decision of Mike Baird, lets show NSW Labor and Luke Foley that he is so terribly wrong and that those that care for animals are not ‘elitist’ or just from the inner city.

    I will be speaking at the event along with Mehreen Faruqi, lets pay our respects to all the animals that have and are suffering at the hands of this industry. Lets celebrate a historical path forward in closing the book on this industry in NSW.
