Local farmers and their families need our support and protection from unlawful extreme animal rights activists.
Our farmers deserve to feel safe. This petition of residents in the State of Victoria draws the attention of the house to the urgent need for stronger protection of law-abiding farmers and requests:
1. Aussie Farms status as a charitable organisation be revoked
2. The Aussie farms website that exposes farming families and threatens their property and the wellbeing of livestock be shut down
3. Stronger legal protections to appropriately penalise aggressive protesters and trespassers who threaten or encourage damage to property or incite trespass and biosecurity breaches.
