Animal Rights Activism
13 August 2019, Mr McCURDY (Ovens Valley): I urge all businesses in the Ovens Valley to have their say in the upcoming farm trespass inquiry. We must all band together to stop illegal access onto properties in the name of animal welfare. Victoria is one of the most over-regulated economies in the world. Animal welfare is paramount to our economic and future success and it is already well monitored. However, if we stand aside and let vegan activists and other minority organisations deliberately break the law, it will bite us all in the future. Your business could be targeted next, so I encourage you to join me at the upcoming Wangaratta hearings, make a submission or at the very least show your support for those who are at risk of vegan and other invasions.
