It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Karin Geradts, a long time CPR supporter and a key figure within the animal protection movement.
Karin was the convenor of the Greens Animals Working Group – Victoria. She was a great asset to animals and will be sorely missed – but the work she invested will live on and continue to change the lives of animals. Rest in peace Karin.

VIDEO: Following on from the death of Show Dancer on May 21, there has been further carnage on Victorian race tracks, this time at Cranbourne.
Out of 8 trial races, 4 horses fell (2 of them in the same race at the same jump!)
This just defeats any industry claims about improvements in safety of jumps racing. A cruel and dangerous sport like jumps racing will never be safe, definitely not for the horses!
