Governments in the US have begun to threaten the work of animal advocates through the introduction of ‘ag-gag’ laws which, among other things, make it illegal to covertly film and photograph livestock facilities.
In 2006, the US government passed the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act which packages up all forms of non-violent resistance that might threaten agricultural profits and labels them as acts of ‘domestic terrorism’. Alarmingly, support for this type of legislation has now begun to creep into Australian politics.
The 2014 Voiceless Animal Law Lecture Series will examine the rise of ag-gag laws and their effect on transparency and public discourse.
To present this topic, Voiceless is proud to welcome award-winning journalist and one of America’s foremost ag-gag experts, Will Potter, as the keynote speaker.
Touring 12 venues throughout Australia, the lectures are open to the public and free to attend. Find your local venue and register now.
