Label all products containing palm oil for sale in Australia

    1. Petition by


Palm oil production which is not sustainable is killing thousand of animals, including orangutans in incredibly inhumane ways. Australians should be able to identify foods and products containing this oil to make a choice to support this industry or not. At present, there is no law requiring palm oil to be explicitly labelled and as such we cannot choose to not consume palm oil when described often as 'vegetable oil' on the goods we purchase.

      Thank you for each and every one of your support. We have hit our 7,000 milestone which is fantastic. However we were really hoping to get to 10,000 so that we can deliver a petition with a strong and wider reaching network of support. If you could share this with your friends we would be very grateful.

      thank you.

      Just a quick update to thank you all for your support so far. We have passed our 6,000 milestone. The job isn't done yet though so please share this to your friends, families, strangers, and all those in between so we can raise the awareness this issue deserves and take this to parliament so that we have a choice in whether we support palm oil. We have a right to choose.

      Thank you!

      Look at the picture on the petition site. That is what human beings do to other creatures to gain big profits. Burn them alive, make them starve to death! Only the "most developed" mammal, the human race, is capable of doing such atrocities! So much disrespect for our fellow creatures, indifference and beastliness comes only from humans, no other animal acts like this. They don't know greed for money, they don't cheat, they don't lie and they are not as selfish and full of sh...t as a large part of humans are. I am bristleing with anger! "The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. That's the essence of inhumanity." -George Bernard Shaw "If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men." -St. Francis of Assisi
