We stood strong for rodeo animals outside the 2019 Mid Northern Rodeo in Whangarei despite verbal abuse and heckling we received from rodeo cowboys. We want Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to follow through on Labour’s pre-election promises to ban to worst aspects of rodeo.
We saw in 2019 protesting outside the Warkworth Rodeo for the fourth year in a row. We’re sick of seeing animals dying for entertainment at rodeos. Enough is enough, we want the Labour-led Government to ban rodeo. Photography by Chris Huriwai.
We handed in 30,000 signatures against the Mainland Poultry mega egg factory farm to Waikato District Council. A decision on the mega farm is expected February 2019. Photographs by Jinki Cambronero.
Around 90 people protested outside Tegel’s headquarters calling for them to pull the plug on their 9 million chicken mega factory plans.
We wanted to show New Zealand what goes on behind the closed doors of Tegel’s farms. The animal suffering we witnessed shocked us. Tegel want to build a mega chicken farm that will raise and slaughter 9 milliion chickens a year.
DAA recently took a closer look at a colony cage factory farm under construction. While colony cages aren’t the next ‘big thing’ the egg industry thought they’d be, many are still being installed around NZ.
Direct Animal Action took a closer look at Mainland Poultry’s trial multi-tiered aviary egg farm near Dunedin. What we witnessed is not what New Zealander’s imagine when they spend extra hard-earned dollars on “cage-free” eggs.
Over 100 people attended the 2018 protest outside Warkworth Rodeo! No-one wants to see animal abuse for entertainment anymore!
Direct Animal Action held a peaceful, visual protest outside of the 2016 GreyHound Racing AGM in Auckland.
Direct Animal Action joined Whangarei locals to peacefully protest the Mid Northern Rodeo and urge the public to boycott the event. It was a beautiful sunny day and so fabulous to stand up for the animals with a 40 strong group of caring individuals.
