Help to end factory farming
Professor Rob White, AWAC chairman, says that ' If the Minister accepts the committee's advice, Tasmania would become the first Australian state to legislate a ban on sow stalls.'
This is a huge step forward in developing a humane industry, and a chance to end cruel and unnecessary slaughter.
Now is your chance to TAKE ACTION
Help voice to the Minister that the Australian public want a total ban on sow stalls and that it his is duty to regulate the industry appropriately. Please write to Tasmania's Minister for Primary Industries, Bryan Green, at
Burnie, TAS, 7320
- Commend the Tasmanian Animal Welfare Advisory Committee for recommending the ban on sow stalls.
- Urge the Minister to strongly consider the Committee's recommendation as evidence which supports expert opinion and public demand for more humane industry regulations.
- Bring to the Minister's attention the opportunity for Tasmania to follow International lead in banning sow stalls.
- Call on the Minister to commit to the Committee's recommendation, and in doing so, appropriately represent all Australians concerned for the cruel and unnecessary treatment of pigs, and bring forward an issue which deserves more humane and sustainable development.
- Please send us copies of any replies that you may receive.
