Mr. Morison said, “Those who engage in using such information to incite criminal activity of people going and seeking to trespass or cause these types of injuries to the well-being of our farming community, they will face jail terms of up to 12 months.”

“We’re not kidding. It’s not just their farm, it’s their home. It’s where their kids live and grow up.”

The Vegan Protest of Monday 8th April

Vegan activists group Aussie Farms, reportedly on Monday 8th April launched their cross border campaign that went out of control and police had to intervene. Protesters chained themselves to abattoirs and vehicles, spam called farmers in Victoria, New South Wales, and Queensland and blocked a busy street, disrupting the heavy flow of traffic in Melbourne Street. Privacy laws were reportedly renewed last Friday imposing penalties on Aussie Farms for publishing contact details of farmers. It has been also reported but the law would exempt journalists from revealing illegal conduct in the agriculture industry. What do you think about the new proposed law?
