Support for animal cruelty potentially just got a whole lot worse with the changes to Senate voting arrangements

The Turnbull lead Coalition Government has an appalling record in its support for animal cruelty. In just a few months it has added further support to the live trade in farm animals, the grotesque kangaroo slaughter industry, and the overseas trade in greyhound dogs to name just three areas.

The changes to the voting system recently imposed upon us by the Liberal and Green alliance means this record on animal cruelty by the Australian Parliament may get a whole lot worse. Both of these parties believe it will … Continue reading

Animal Justice Party renewed policy on greyhound racing

The AJP Position

The Animal Justice Party believes that animals should be enjoyed, appreciated, respected and cared for in terms of their natural behaviours, whether wild or domesticated. They should not be terrified as they perform unnatural behaviours, under pressure to perform for monetary gain and forced to endure illness, injury and over-exertion all for the pleasure of audience entertainment and gambling. The AJP therefore seeks a uniform nationwide ban on animals in entertainment ban, through Federal legislation.

Animal Score Card: Mr Turnbull’s 100 days as PM

After 100 days as PM, Mr Turnbull has shown that animal abuse by his self-labelled Government of the 21st Century is set to continue at record levels. After 100 days this is what we have seen Mr Turnbull achieve for animals:

  • Held negotiations with the Indonesian Government to dramatically increase the live trade in cattle to that country despite all the evidence of ongoing extreme cruelty in this industry
  • Provided financial support to increase export marketing by the hideous commercial kangaroo killing industry, thereby strengthening our claim … Continue reading
