Sentient witness in Senate Inquiry Criminal Code Amendment (Animal Protection) Bill 2015

May 21, 2015

On 15th May 2015, Sentient was proud to give evidence, alongside RSPCA Australia, the Barristers Animal Welfare Panel and Voiceless, The Animal Protection Institute, at the Senate Inquiry into Senator Chris Back's proposed Criminal Code Amendment (Animal Protection) Bill 2015. We formed a strong alliance in speaking out against 'ag-gag' legislation, which would conceal systemic animal cruelty in a range of industries. Sentient opposes the Bill on animal protection grounds, and will continue to advocate for regulatory reforms that will increase transparency in animal enterprises (including independent auditing, mandatory reporting of animal cruelty, CCTV cameras and the extension of covert surveillance powers to our authorised Inspectorates).
