Greens Senators have reacted to the passage of the Government’s anti-protest ag gag legislation which passed the Senate with Labor support.
Senator Mehreen Faruqi, Greens Animal Welfare Spokesperson, said:
“This bill is an absolute fraud. It’s nothing more than ag gag legislation aimed at protecting big agribusiness from scrutiny at the cost of animal welfare and the community’s right to know and protest.
“The Greens are proud to oppose laws aimed at stamping out protest and jailing activists and whistleblowers.”
