yet again i was proud to be one of the thousands of supporters around australia who turned out to support oscar's law - the movement forged to fight for the abolition of puppy factories...

meet oscar, the boy whose rescue created a movement...hard to believe this is the same wee boy hey!

debra tranter (founder of oscar's law, member of animal liberation victoria and writer of the blog prisoners for profit) brought many of us to tears, as did trish burke (founder of pets haven animal shelter)... one other speaker that i found incredibly inspirational was elizabeth anile, founder of ataac (australian teens against animal cruelty) when she spoke of the moment she 'made the connection' and decided to give up all animal products and fight against animal enslavement - hopefully she will inspire a generation with her vision...

there were other speakers - politicians not worth the mention (i don't believe any of their crap no matter what party they belong to), and derryn hinch (it's good that he supports oscar's law but he is always one to 'push his own barrow' at the same time!)... the main rally finished with a couple of 'the northshore boys' performing the song they wrote, named - what else - 'oscar's law' and then it was a march and gathering in the treasury gardens for stalls full of information on different campaigns to end animal brutality...

the lack of major news coverage is extremely disappointing - and when there was coverage it was downplayed - guess that shows the power and might of the industry and the vested interests involved... not to mention the complicity of silence where many just want to pretend nothing bad happens - 'if i don't see it, don't read about it, don't listen, it doesn't exist'... sadly until people take it seriously, get out there and demonstrate in large numbers, of course nothing will change... what more can i say - it's up to us to give voice to the voiceless!!

i was hoping there would be some clips uploaded of the rally by now - but no, not yet! but i did buy the wee petey an oscar's law bandanna and you can see her wearing it in this short, quick clip i uploaded when i got home - you also get an idea of how tiny she really is, standing next to the watering can - she's not much bigger than oscar...
