Expose the truth behind Australian dairy

This petition had 4,617 supporters

In the midst of the current Australian dairy crisis, the mainstream media has ignored and silenced the industry's victims: the 1.7 million dairy cows and their stolen calves. We're calling on Triple J Hack to cover the whole story, because we believe Hack has the journalistic integrity to report all sides of the issue. 

The Australian public has been misled to think that dairy is a harmless practice. The dairy industry feeds us fairy tales about happy cows who love to be milked, when in reality cows are kept constantly pregnant so the industry can take the milk meant for their children. Consumers are still largely unaware that mother cows have their calves stolen from them almost immediately after birth, and that hundreds of thousands of male calves are slaughtered as infants because the industry classes them as waste products.

On Wednesday 25th May, a Hack representative stated that Triple J was considering covering the animals' side of the story. If enough of us voice our support, we can finally get dairy cows the representation they deserve.
