The Animal Justice Party – for animals, the environment and people
Why should I vote AJP?
Australians love animals, we want to see they are protected and treated with kindness. Yet, we have some of the worst animal welfare laws in the world. Millions of hens are still crammed into battery cages. Puppies are still being intensively farmed in puppy factories. And our brutal killing of kangaroos is the largest landbased wildlife massacre in the world. It seems that as long as people are making money out of animal suffering, our politicians don’t want to touch it. The AJP is the only party focused on changing that. If you want to see animals and the environment protected for future generations, then vote 1 AJP at the election in May and be part of a kinder future.
On May 18th the Animal Justice Party plan to get Angela Pollard elected and get a voice for animals in the Federal parliament!
Our Federal Election Campaigns:
Ban Live Export
Each year, millions of animals suffer on lengthy sea journeys. We won’t stop until we achieve a ban on all live animal exports, forever.
Combat the Climate Emergency
Urgent action must be taken to address global climate destabilisation. We will legislate to protect forests and marine habitats from further destruction and invest in clean energy and the transition from animal agriculture to plant-based agriculture.
End Factory Farming
Factory farming causes immense animal suffering. We will fight for a rapid phase out of battery hen cages and sow stalls.
Safeguard our National Emblem
Kangaroos should be protected and not seen as resources or pests. We will urgently change legislation to protect kangaroos from commercial killing.
Protect Wildlife Habitats
Land clearing is an animal welfare disaster, displacing and killing huge numbers of wildlife. We will introduce laws to protect wildlife habitats.
Establish a Federal Animal Rights Commission
Animals have unique rights which should be protected by law. We will establish a legal system for animals which protects their right to live free from human harm.
A vote for the AJP doesn’t just help animals.
We want to create a kinder and better world for all through:
- A stable and healthy environment for future generations.
- Equality and safety in areas such as gun use, violence, health, education and mental health.
