He is also a founder of a developing Animal Justice Party which will be registered for the 2023 general election. The more votes Michael wins, the more public awareness is raised about the importance of animal justice.
Michael’s official profile statement is below.
“Kia ora koutou
I am a policy adviser, scientist, teacher and vegan for the animals.
I am the only candidate representing the underclass; tormented, mutilated and cruelly slaughtered in their billions.
I also stand for environmental justice, and justice for financially disadvantaged humans. All are related.
Environmental damage disproportionally affects animals as we saw in the Australian bush fires. Animal agriculture contributes to climate change, pandemics, food insecurity and habitat destruction.
Social ills, including environmental damage and animal consumption, are worse in unequal societies. Income equality benefits all.
Policies include; free and comprehensive public transport, plant-based council functions, no lethal animal management, phasing out animal farming, no rodeo or animal racing on council property, preserving trees and biodiversity. A living wage for council staff, including contractors.
Changes to be funded by capping salaries (including my own), selling unnecessary council assets for (sustainable) development, and developer levies. No rate rises”.
