Tell the Federal Minister for Agriculture to support legal protection for farmed animals

« Return to actions list

Take action to call for a Federal Parliamentary Inquiry into the lack of legal protection for farmed animals.

What we want

Legal protection for farmed animals

Most of what is done to farmed animals in farms and slaughterhouses  is only legal because of exemptions to our animal welfare laws which mean that what would be illegal if it was done to a dog or a cat, is legal when done to a pig or a cow. We are calling for legal protection for farmed animals which recognises their sentience and ability to feel and suffer, starting with a federal inquiry into animal slaughter methods and the lack of legal protection for farmed animals

A just transition to slaughter-free food production

The technology which would allow us to transition away from commercialised animal slaughter already exists. Through a combination of plant-based food innovation and the emerging cell-based meat industry, we are more than capable of feeding our country without current levels of suffering and violence. Our government needs to move away from meat, dairy and eggs towards slaughter free food production. This includes:

  • Investing in slaughter-free food production including plant-based and cell-based protein development.
  • Redirection of the millions of dollars in public funding currently funnelled into meat, dairy and eggs away from slaughter-based food production and into alternatives
  • Supporting vulnerable workers to escape the slaughter industry. Developing a just transition for workers in these violent industries, linked to high levels of mental illness and brutality, into alternative roles.
