[STOP PRESS] ABC Q&A TONIGHT 9.30pm: AJP Member, Helen Walton, may have the opportunity to question about farm animals, stating she is a member of AJP

Dear Supporter / Member,

The Animal Justice Party is rapidly going from strength to strength. From almost 100,000 votes in the last Federal election to more than tripling that percentage in the recent Victorian election, very often being the leading minor Party. We will, with your support, elect people into the parliaments of Australia.

NSW is a very real opportunity where a candidate could be elected at this Saturday’s election so we really need your support.

Please be as generous with your time as you can and help to herald the much needed voice of animals into the, often indifferent to the plight of animals, halls of parliament.

We are standing Mark Pearson, lead candidate, with Lynda Stoner for the Upper House [Legislative Council]; Michael Walsh for Newtown; Michelle Nielssen for Balmain; Cherie Imlah in the Lismore electorate; Susan Strain for Lake MacQuarie and Josh Agland for Swansea.

Please commit to even just an hour handing out ‘HOW TO VOTE’ cards at the pre-poll and polling booths from now until 6pm Saturday.

AJP to Start Youth Group

Following the success of the youth group in the Dutch Party for the Animals, the Animal Justice Party at its recent Annual General Meeting agreed to give impetus to encouraging young folk to become members. The eventual goal is to establish a young person’s wing of the Party. Party president Professor Steve Garlick said it was vital that the fresh ideas and tech savvy knowledge of young people was important in ridding the parliamentary system in this country and its supporting political bodies of their disregard for the wellbeing of all animals.

To progress this initiative, a meeting is being held at the University of Sydney on 17 March at 4.00pm in Carslaw 352.  Meetings at other universities will follow soon. Inquiries can be directed to Hazel Stephens at: hazelstrephens@yahoo.com
