Federal Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce intends to bring these US AG- Gag laws to Australia hoping that harsh penalties will deter these activists from exposing animal abuse in our country too. 

Video evidence is one of the primary ways in which animal cruelty is exposed around the world, and this gagging law will simply allow animal abuse to continue in private.

Tell Joyce to criminalise cruelty, not whistleblowing, and drop plans to gag activists.
