Shooters Party

National Park rangers reject recreational hunting in parks

Park Rangers in NSW Public Service Association will take industrial action to show their lack of confidence in NSW Premier's backroom deal with shooters party to give them hunting access in our National Parks. This seems the right thing to do. The current government attitude to New South Wales's beautiful parks and indigenous animals seems unAustralian and somehow blasphemous, for these are our icons and Mother Nature's home. This foreshadowed desecration of our national parks is linked to deals to privatise NSW electricity.

Barry O'Farrell, NSW electricity privatisation and shooting in National Parks Australia

O'Farrell gunning down democracy. Electricity privatisation continues to cause bizarre consequences as yet another State Premier will apparently do anything to push it through, despite almost total lack of electoral support. See our history of attempts to privatise electricity in NSW. It reads like a war on democracy. Now that war is against the State's wildlife. During his first week in government, the NSW Premier, Barry O`Farrell, made a strong promise to environment groups and the people of NSW that he would not allow shooting in National Parks. Now he has done a deal with the Shooters and Fishers Party so that they will support his electricity privatisation bill. Shame on Barry, Shame on the Shooters and Fishers who many see as just another front for the Libs in NSW, posing as another party.

National Kangaroo Awareness Day 24 October


Venue: Belmore Park, Eddie Avenue end, opposite Central Railway; Date: Saturday, 24th October
Time: 11.30am to set up, 12.00pm - 2.00pm for the rally

"In the last decade, permits have been issued to allow the commercial slaughter of 49.6 million kangaroos primarily to give household pets a bit of variety in their diet. That is but one instance of a set of behaviours that suggests that, with a population of 22 million people, we haven’t managed to find accommodation with our environment. Our record has been poor and in my view we are not well placed to deal effectively with the environmental challenges posed by a population of 35 million." (Australian Secretary of Treasury, Ken Henry)

Emergency protest: Stop shooting in Australia's national parks

12:00pm, Tuesday 27th October 2009
Outside NSW Parliament, Macquarie Street, Sydney
Bring your signs. Bring your friends.
The Labor Government is once again doing deals with the Shooters Party. Labor has made an offer to allow hunting in 13 national parks in exchange for the support of the two Shooters Party MPs in the NSW Upper House to help pass government legislation.

NSW Shooter Bill meeting last night in Pymble (25-8-09)

A jam packed meeting with both sides represented. Why so much public money to gun lobbyists and private parties when wildlife carers get nothing? It should be emphatically noted that every member of the NSW govt refused to attend or be on the speakers panel.

Robert Borsak - Australia's Sarah Palin? Do you want him in your Parliament?

Game Council chairman Robert Borsak recently killed several elephants for entertainment in northern Zimbabwe. Robert intends to stand for the Shooters Party in the next NSW elections. Thanks to Robert Mugabe's corruption, it is quite "legal" to shoot elephants there. The amount Borsak and other "hunters" must pay, adds to the dictator's coffers and to the great sadness of people who respect and care about elephants.

FGA Hunters used stolen water to draw ducks to slaughter

“As Field and Game Australia entered into a partnership to purchase the property with the Hugh Williamson Trust, the West Gippsland Catchment Management Authority (WGCMA) and environment group, Watermark, it remains to be seen whether these highly reputable organisations will risk their credibility by remaining in partnership with FGA." (Laurie Levy)

Shooters Party - fanatical red necks pushing for open season in National Parks

Since May 2009, Robert Brown MP of the Shooters Party has been pushing for the GAME AND FERAL ANIMAL CONTROL AMENDMENT BILL 2009 to be passed into NSW legislation. The spin of this Bill is so feral animals can be controlled in National Parks. But in reality the proposed changes would overturn all environmental legislation protecting our remaining wildlife in NSW. It would be 24/7 open season on wildlife perpetually across NSW every day of the year.

NSW cabinet national parks trade-off with shooters party for lottery privatisation delayed

NSW Primary Industries Minister, Ian Macdonald, the Police Minister, Tony Kelly, and the Treasurer, Eric Roozendaal, want Shooters Party members to replace Government agencies but other members of Cabinet resist the bloody push to turn our national parks into safari machines or worse

Rees' 'red hot go' hunting in our National Parks

NSW Premier Rees is set to pass into law a 'Game and Feral Animal Control Amendment Bill 2009' to permit recreational hunters shooting everything and anything in protected National Parks across NSW including native wildlife.

Controlling feral animals is a science, not a sport. Rees passion for sport is being compromised by influential cronies. Problem is, Rees has no knowledge, experience in or aptitude for science. His inaugural 'red hot go' says it all and threatens to be his legacy. See also
