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 … Continue reading ]]> http://animaljusticeparty.org/stop-press-abc-qa-tonight-9-30pm-ajp-member-helen-walton-may-have-the-opportunity-to-question-about-farm-animals-stating-she-is-a-member-of-ajp/feed/ 1 How to Vote in NSW Elections http://animaljusticeparty.org/how-to-vote-in-nsw-elections/ http://animaljusticeparty.org/how-to-vote-in-nsw-elections/#comments Mon, 23 Mar 2015 02:18:46 +0000 http://animaljusticeparty.org/?p=810 Animal Justice How to Vote

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 … Continue reading ]]> http://animaljusticeparty.org/ajp-to-start-youth-group/feed/ 0 NSW Election Campaign to Begin in Earnest http://animaljusticeparty.org/nsw-election-campaign-to-begin-in-ernest/ http://animaljusticeparty.org/nsw-election-campaign-to-begin-in-ernest/#comments Sat, 31 Jan 2015 10:39:34 +0000 http://animaljusticeparty.org/?p=763 The AJP is officially registered for the March NSW election and next week will begin announcing its upper and lower house candidates.

Four young people take an investigative road trip around Australia after stumbling upon online activist videos of suffering farm animals.

Given the closeness in votes to other small parties there is a real prospect, given our trend, of jumping to fifth by the time of the … Continue reading ]]> http://animaljusticeparty.org/great-result-for-the-ajp-in-the-victorian-election/feed/ 0
