It was a great rally in Brisbane on Sunday 7 February 2016 as part of a National Day of Action. 700 people gathered at Southbank parklands to support an end to greyhound racing. The event was focused on opposition to this commercial gambling industry which is responsible for the wastage of thousands of greyhounds every year, and its culture of cruelty, corruption, and complacency, and opposition to continued government support of this industry that does not meet community expectations.
A fantastic turnout of people (and dogs) in Brisbane speaking up for Greyhounds!! #SHUTITDOWN
Rallies were also held yesterday in Sydney, Lismore, Gosford, Airlie Beach, Cairns, Canberra, Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide and Perth.
