livestock farming

Jacy Reese

This podcast is of a recent presentation given at the University of Tasmania.  "Reese will trace out a roadmap for how humanity is transitioning to the end of animal farming. The timeline has four stages: Foundation, Revolution, Stigmatization, and Follow-Through.

Say No to Nuchev Goat Factory Farm

The Animal Justice Party's Andy Meddick chats about the community of Lara campaign  against a cruel 4500 head intensive goat factory and processing plant, in what has truly been a David and Goliath struggle, battling not just the international dairy giant but City Hall as well!

This is the talk given by Brad King, director of Farm Animal Rescue (Qld), at the recent Animal Activists Forum in Melbourne.  Brad details the cruelty & terrible suffering caused by farmed animals' genetic design.  He also shares some wonderful stories of the FAR sanctuary residents who, now in safety, are able to express their natural range of social and emotional behaviours.

Be inspired by the selflessness of lamb foster carers Emma Sullivan of Animal Liberation Victoria & Luke Westmoreland of Victorian Lamb Rescue, and get angry about the enormous yet largely unknown death toll of the Australian sheep industry.
 

We chat with Sydney Fox Rescue about 1080 poison which is used to kill foxes and in its usage kills many other 'unwanted' and 'wanted' species.  Andy Meddick from AJP also joins us  to shed light on this very dark & cruel poison.

Paul Mahony, climate change & animal rights campaigner, describes the links he's found between Australia's environmental organisations & the livestock industry, which he's mapped out in his online presentation "The Link That Too Many Ignore".  Could this explain why so few people are talking about the very significant role of animal agriculture in climate change?

Paul's blog:  https://terrastendo.net

 "Dairy is often promoted as a ‘no harm’ industry, yet at the core of this multi-billion dollar business is the exploitation of the dairy cow and her calf."

Voiceless sat down last year with a dairy farmer, a vegan, an academic and an animal activist to talk about the ethics of high production dairy farming in Australia.

We hear about social and environmental impacts of livestock farming in rural Africa from Geoff Russell who's the author of "CSIRO Perfidy" and a candidate for the Animal Justice Party in South Australia, and Gerard Wedderburn-Bisshop of the World Preservation Foundation & Beyond Zero Emissions.

We share the excellent talks given by Paul Mahony (climate change activist/blogger & Melbourne Pig Save co-founder) & Mark Doneddu (President of Vegetarian Victoria) at Melbourne's recent Sustainable Living Festival. They speak about the massive toll that animal agriculture has on climate, human health, and poverty.  The talks reference the Australian context, as well as the international context.  These two speakers are a wealth of information.

In the lead up to the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 21) that begins in Paris late this month, we are replaying two very relevant interviews we originally broadcast in June:

Gerard Wedderburn-Bisshop from Beyond Zero Emissions talks about BZE's Land Use Plan and its recommendations for Australia's animal agriculture industry. And Judith Friedlander from the University of Technology Sydney sheds some light on why mainstream media goes so quiet when it comes to meat's role in climate change.
