AJP and Greens Petitions to End Greyhound Racing


Below are the Animal Justice Party and NSW Greens Petitions calling for a ban to greyhound racing. Please edit the AJP for your particular state/territory, download and print for distribution before or at the rally.

The Greens petition is specific to NSW. If you live in NSW, you can download and obtain signatures on the one below.

People who have distributed such material already have said the most individuals who they approach are extremely happy to sign, take stickers, put up posters etc. This is an indication of how strong the sentiment to end greyhound racing is in the community.

I am an author, adjunct associate professor in psychology and have advocated for animal welfare for more than 15 years. On the basis of my extensive research, I can confidently argue that if we cultivate a culture of compassion toward all of our non-human citizens, including those currently exploited for human use (such as food, sport and experimentation), current and future generations will benefit through reduced antisocial and violent behaviour toward all sentient beings including humans. Over my 25-year career as an academic, I have published over 100 scholarly articles in refereed academic journals and have also conducted a number of projects examining the link between aggression toward humans and cruelty toward animals. In 2000, I founded a group within the Australian Psychological Society focused on promoting positive interactions between humans and animals. This work has resulted in several scholarly publications including a book published in 2012, titled Animal cruelty, Antisocial Behaviour and Aggression: More than a link.
