Greyhound Rally

Monday 17 October 2016

NSW politics reached new lows with the major parties using animal cruelty as a political football. Parliament should close this cruel, small, government – and gambling – subsidised industry and I encourage you to attend the rally.

NSW politics reached new lows with the major parties using animal cruelty as a political football. Labor promised a strong animal welfare policy before the election, but opposed the greyhound racing ban to cause pain for the government (especially at the Orange by-election) and the government claimed a ban was the only solution but baulked at ongoing pressure and retreated to support industry tweaks. The Special Commission of Inquiry concluded abhorrent cruelty including massive killings, frequent injuries, painful DIY treatment, live baiting and long term kennelling cannot be fixed.

Parliament should close this cruel, small, government – and gambling – subsidised industry and I encourage you to attend the rally. Information HERE
