A new federal political party has been created by a group of concerned animal advocates who believe enough is not being done for Australian animals. The desire is to build a balance to counter those forces with vested interests and who misuse animals as a profit motive. This is the announcement we received:
The Animal Justice Party is happy to announce the next stage in working toward being a voice for the animals in the political arena.
We need your support.
The charter is now up on the AJP website and we hope this will make you as excited as we are in moving ahead as a political force.
This charter will form the basis for a range of policy papers that will be progressively released over coming months”.
Please join us by becoming a member of the Animal Justice Party. All you have to do is print out the attached form or down load from our website.
Please send to: Animal Justice Party, P.O. Box 3126, Blakehurst 2221., NSW
Don’t wait for tomorrow do it now!
Every second you wait an animal is suffering and dying. If we work together we can be their voice.”
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at
you, then they fight you, then you win”
“The Animal Justice Party has been formed as a response to growing public concern about the neglect of animals and animal protection issues by political parties. It will give a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves. It will provide a focal point for voters frustrated by the lack of political action and who feel strongly that much more needs to be done through our parliamentary systems to assist the wellbeing of animals.

Who are the AJP? We were told:
“”For the past few months we have had a steering committee in place to put in place the necessary infrastructure to establish a new political party that would represent animals (the voiceless) in our parliamentary system. The tasks of this committee are to draft a charter, construct a web site and logo, draft a constitution, establish a membership data base, begin the formulation of policy and discussion papers, form an association, and register the Party with the Australian Electoral Commission. We are now a long way to achieving these foundation goals. The people participating in the Steering Committee are from a mix of backgrounds to do with the well being of animals. All have very high ethical standards, many years of experience, and are deeply committed to the task. Once established over the coming months it is likely all AJP members will have the opportunity to be actively involved either in the Party’s management, in contributing to policy development and a host of other necessary tasks.”
