Former NSW premier Bob Carr will be joined by other celebrity animal activists in launching ‘From Nest To Nugget: an exposé of Australia’s chicken factories’. Voiceless’s report on Australia’s chicken factories lifts the veil of secrecy surrounding an industry which saw approximately 470 million chickens slaughtered in 2006/07 in battery farms.
There will also be the announcement of the 2008 grant recipients, who will receive funding totalling $136,500, including the inaugural ‘Against Factory Farming Grant’.
Hugo Weaving, a patron of Voiceless, attend the launch alongside Triple J presenter Lindsay Macdougall, model Imogen Bailey and others.
Who’s coming: Bob Carr, Hugo Weaving, Lindsay Macdougall, Imogen Bailey, Brian Sherman
