Money speaks louder than words - NSW must properly fund the domestic and family violence sector

For decades, the domestic and family violence sector have told governments exactly what is needed to eliminate violence against women and children. We have had inquiry after inquiry, report after report. But the NSW Labor Government is still refusing to take the action so desperately...

Reform NSW policing of domestic and family violence matters: stop police investigating police - Abigail Boyd MP

Reform NSW policing of domestic and family violence matters: stop police investigating police

Victims of domestic abuse deserve to have their claims handled safely and without bias or conflict. But right now in NSW, victims of domestic abuse perpetrated by a police officer face a police system stacked against them.  Police officers are at least as likely to...

Public Energy for Public Good - Abigail Boyd MP

Public Energy for Public Good

As we transition to 100% renewable energy, we must learn from the past mistakes of privatisation and ensure our energy assets are kept in public hands.  Electricity is an essential service. But Labor and Liberal governments have sold off NSW’s energy assets and infrastructure, leaving...

Independent Office of Animal Welfare - Abigail Boyd MP (updated)

EMAIL THE MINISTER TO SUPPORT AN INDEPENDENT OFFICE OF ANIMAL WELFARE

We need an Independent Office of Animal Welfare.  Right now, responsibility for animal welfare sits with the Minister for Agriculture, even though their Department’s designated purpose is to drive stronger primary industries — an inherent conflict of interest when animal agriculture profits are too often...

Homes for Every Body

Tax Superprofits to Pay Workers More - Abigail Boyd MP (updated)

Tax Superprofits to Pay Workers More

End drink spiking. End victim blaming.  - Abigail Boyd MP

End drink spiking. End victim blaming.

Is it a campaign to tackle drink spiking, or just more victim blaming?  “Pace yourself. Count your drinks, try a low-alcohol alternative, or have a ‘spacer’ of water between alcoholic drinks.  “Avoid shouts, drinking games or shots. Drink at your own pace, you don’t have...

Rodeos have got to go - Abigail Boyd MP (updated)

Rodeos have got to go

Rodeos are the height of animal cruelty posed as entertainment — torturing sentient beings with the express purpose of making them respond to fear and pain, and then making a show out of trying to dominate the terrified animal.

Protect our right to protest - Abigail Boyd MP (updated)

Protect the right to protest in NSW

The right and freedom to protest is fundamental to the legitimacy of our democracy. To take action on the streets is often the only path available to challenge institutional or structural inequalities and injustice. In NSW, that basic political right has been dramatically and abruptly curtailed....

Right to vote for 16 year olds - Abigail Boyd MP (updated)

Expand the right to vote to 16 year olds

Democracy doesn’t start and end at the ballot box, but without a vote you don’t have a voice. Our current election laws leave politically engaged, impassioned young people voiceless and frustrated. That’s why I introduced a Bill that will empower young people to participate in...

Email MPs to support recognising animal sentience

Animals are sentient beings that consciously and subjectively feel joy, fear, pleasure and suffering. To the very vast majority of us, this is not a controversial statement - we have all interacted with animals and seen it for ourselves.  But in New South Wales, our...

No more missing greyhounds - Abigail Boyd MP (updated)

No more missing greyhounds

A greyhound’s speed should not determine whether it lives or dies. But prior to 2016, at least 5,500 healthy greyhounds were being killed every single year in NSW, simply because they couldn’t earn their keep in the racing industry. And despite the 2017 industry reforms,...
