The Animal Justice Party in Western Australia has grown from strength to strength since its inception here in late 2012.
We have run candidates for the Senate in three federal elections, in 2013 (and Senate re-election in 2014), 2016 and 2019, and candidates for three federal by-elections in 2015 and 2018, gaining a record-breaking 5.25% of the vote in the Fremantle by-election. We also ran 14 candidates in the 2017 WA state election, for both the Legislative Council and Assembly. Our vote grows every time West Australians go to the polls reflecting the growing concern for animal rights and welfare for all animals and a desire to see wildlife protected.
Our membership rocketed from around 80, to well over 500 leading up to the state election, but we must maintain that membership to remain registered as a political party in WA – that’s where you come in.
We are quickly hurtling towards a March 2021 WA State Election, and with your help, we can get someone elected to the Legislative Council. The work that Animal Justice Party’s Andy Meddick MP is doing in Victoria, and that Emma Hurst MP and Mark Pearson MP are carrying out in NSW Parliament, demonstrate the value of Animal Justice Party representatives when elected to work for animals, nature and the environment. You can help by JOINING as a member, DONATING to our State Election campaign (make sure you select Western Australia) and letting us know that you would like to VOLUNTEER.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page for news about our candidates as they are endorsed and we’ll have election news up on the website towards the end of the year.
