The Justice for Animals protest marched along Lambton Quay, Wellington’s Golden Mile retail thoroughfare, and the chant rang out :-
“What do we want?”
“Justice for Animals!”
“When do we want it?”
Mum and I have never been on a protest march, we are active a lot online (see our AnimalSOS page) but this time we needed to make our voices heard.
Why Protest at Justice for Animals?
The issue is not ‘belief’ against ‘belief’ (think UK Labour/Conservative or USA Democrats/Republicans) this is a government in power condoning experiments on animals for a ‘fun drug’. This bothered Mum and I so we had to speak out.
Ordinary People Want Justice for Animals
Mum had a textile class but after it finished she rushed into Wellington and was able to hear John Banks vocal opponent against animal testing, Mojo Mathers (Green Party) and Ian Lees-Galloway (Labour) speak. Sadly, no-one from the Government (National Party) had the courage to stand up.
