PETA's ridiculous call for taxpayer-funded chicken shrine

November 28, 2017

Australian Conservatives senator Cory Bernardi has moved a Senate motion condemning PETA for its ridiculous call for a taxpayer-funded shrine to honour 6,000 chickens killed in a truck rollover near Lismore, NSW. 

'People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals' made the call for a shrine earlier today on the ABC in response to the road accident on Monday.  

Senator Bernardi's motion reads as follows:

That the Senate,

(1)               notes the latest publicity stunt from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals a.k.a PETA who have called for taxpayers to build a memorial to 6,000 chickens killed in a truck crash near Lismore, New South Wales on Monday 27 November 2017; and

(2)             further notes PETA’s history of stunts and attacks on Australia’s livestock farming, meat manufacturing, meat retail, hunting and racing sectors, putting regional jobs and economies at risk; and

(3)              calls upon the Commonwealth government and all state and territory governments to resist all attempts by PETA to

  1. further jeopardise Australia’s economy and way of life; and
  2. make demands upon Australian taxpayers.

UPDATE (29 November 2017): This afternoon the Senate passed the motion, as explained in this tweet:
