Green Is The New Red
Australian animal rights campaigner Patty Mark is arrested for an open rescue of abused hens. Will Potter speaks with Progressive Podcast Australia about the international criminalization of dissent.
Ag-gag legislation against photographing animal abuse has been defeated in South Australia, but more bills may be on the way.
It could soon become illegal to protest logging, fracking, or any issue in Tasmania if it may “impede or obstruct the carrying out of business activities.”
This guy wants to dump in the Great Barrier Reef and log ancient forests.
“By eliminating that release to the media, it prevents the public and consumers from knowing what’s happening, which is the point of these ‘ag-gag’ laws,” Potter explained.
Great writeup in Melbourne’s Weekly Times about Will Potter’s lecture tour on how “ag-gag” laws are coming to Australia.
I spoke with the Law Report on Australia’s ABC National about why ag-gag laws are beginning to appear in Australia, and why animal agriculture industries are trying to criminalize undercover investigators.
“The battle for animal welfare is a battle over information.”
“Ag-gag” laws have spread rapidly, and today half a dozen states have made it illegal to film factory farms. Now, the agriculture industry wants to bring ag-gag to Australia.
This is an incredible opportunity to stop these dangerous laws from spreading.
