‘Big Birds, Big Cruelty’ is a community education campaign designed to raise awareness around the little-known issue of factory farmed turkeys in Australia. The $6,100 Voiceless grant funded the production of a significant research report about the factory farming of turkeys in Australia. The report is one element of a broader community education program, which has seen a phase of local grassroots campaigning on this issue. Animal Liberation ACT has held dedicated stalls at the Living Green Festival and the Cruelty Free Festival, as well as leafleting and educational presentations to students at the University of Canberra. Leading up to Christmas, a feature on turkeys was published by Animal Australia which was complemented by continuing campaigns from Animal Liberation NSW and Animal Liberation South Australia, also aimed at raising awareness of turkey cruelty. To view a copy of the report, please click on the download icon below.
