2015 Animal Activist Forum presentation - One Bad Day: A look into the transportation & slaughter of animals in Australia.

Angela Pollard & Josh Agland
Animal Lawyer | Ex-Industry Insider

You often hear the justification “my animals are treated well and they only have one bad day”.
This 'one bad day' refers to the day the animal is transported and slaughtered at an abattoir.

Emma Hurst is a Registered Psychologist, BA(Psy), PGDip(Psy), M(HealthPsy) and the Campaign Director at Animal Liberation, a New South Wales-based animal rights charity that works to end the suffering of exploited and confined animals

This podcast is Emma Hurst's presentation at the 2015 Animal Activist Forum, Using Psycholinguistics to Create Strong Messages for Change.

Emma discusses how the meat and dairy industries uses psycholinguistics - the psychology of language - to create strong messages to encourage the consumption of animal products.

Kym Staton is the founder and organiser of the Sydney Vegan Club and he has a plan – a Vegan Australia by 2025.

Ambitious ? Maybe.

But Kym has strategy, analysis and enthusiasm on his side.

The Sydney Vegan Club hit the ground running; since its recent founding in 2013, it has become one of the largest vegan communities in the world with an impressive 6,000 members … and growing with every outreach event.

How can a Hindu-majority country that recognises cows as sacred also be a major global producer of beef, leather and milk?

Dr Yamini Narayanan provides insight into this perplexing contradiction. Dr Narayanan is an Australian Research Council DECRA Research Fellow at Deakin University.

Dr Timothy Pachirat's keynote presentation from the recent Australasian Animal Studies Association Conference - Animal Publics: Emotions Empathy Activism.

The conference was hosted by the University of Melbourne and co-convened by the Human Rights and Animal Ethics Research Network (HRAE) and the Australian Centre.

Ahead of the Institute for Critical Animal Studies Oceania conference, we talk to the opening night speaker, Dr Dinesh Wadiwel.

Dr Wadiwel is a Lecturer in Human Rights and Socio-Legal Studies at the University of Sydney. His research interests include sovereignty and the nature of rights, violence, race and critical animal studies. In his forthcoming book, The War against Animals, he argues that our mainstay relationships with billions of animals are essentially hostile and that our sovereign claim of superiority over other animals is founded on nothing else but violence.

It's two and a half months since ABC's Four Corners report broadcast Making a Killing – an expose into the illegal use of small animals – piglets, possums, rabbits - as live bait to train greyhounds.

The undercover footage featured in the program, supplied by Animal Liberation Queensland & Animals Australia, horrified the public and sent shockwaves through the Australian greyhound racing industry - charges have been laid, industry boards stood down, life bans handed out and government inquiries launched.

We catch up with Mark Pearson.

You may know him as the long-standing Executive Director of Animal Liberation in Australia but he is also in the running to be the first person to represent the Animal Justice Party in Australian state parliament.

That’s making history!

Mark is an Animal Justice Party general committee member, the Registered Officer for NSW and AJP’s lead candidate for the Legislative Council ( the seat that is still to be decided!)

So tune in for a NSW election wrap up from an Animal Justice Party perspective.
