Animal Justice Party (AJP) Members have descended upon 1 William Street to remind Queensland politicians of the kangaroo slaughter happening under their watch. The Kangaroo Working Group is a cooperation of Queensland and national AJP members led by Maureen Brohman.
Brohman says the event was a success and that politicians and their staffers "couldn't keep their eyes away". The event was jointly held with Coast To Coast Animal Friends and targeted Meaghan Scanlon MP and the Queensland Environment Minister’s office. Its purpose was to bring attention to the brutal commercial kangaroo industry and the inhumane treatment of macropods as outlined in the Draft Queensland Wildlife Trade Management Plan for Export-Commercially Harvested Macropods 2023-2027, which is due to be signed by the federal government next month.
