Welcome Post: Tuesday October 22
Welcome to the Animal Justice Party NSW Blog - This blog will cover a diversity of animal welfare issues, including currently unfolding issues, Animal Justice Party campaigns and important events in parliament.
But first to kick off our first entry, a little background:
The Animal Justice Party was founded due to the increasing opposition to animal cruelty in all its forms and the lack of political action to genuinely protect animals. The mission of the Animal Justice Party is to free animals from enslavement and unimaginable anguish by giving them a political voice.
Kindness, equality, rationality and non-violence encompass integral elements necessary to advancing the Animal Justice Party mission. They are principles which have the capacity to channel passion for animal protection into a force of reason and action to create meaningful change for animals.
Animal protection is inextricably connected to environment protection, which is a colossal challenge facing us all but only we have the power to effect a transformation. Government policies and laws that are genuinely protective of animals and our environment, bolstered by education and outreach, will begin to bring justice and light to the animals that suffer. Through a dynamic political, legal and administrative system we can ensure animal protection is effectively established and implemented, bringing an end to animal abuse and killing for human gain.
Underpinning this is the power of education to foster understanding of animals, respect for their intrinsic value and capabilities, and recognition and protection of their interests. Leading to the initiation of actions to alleviate their suffering, and the creation of a better world for all planetary residents by uniting the human and animal worlds and bringing us into ecological equilibrium.
Our united voice is their voice and now they can finally be heard within our political system; we can be their vote.
