The question of incitement and nuisance

Mr Shoebridge raises the issue of running an anti animal cruelty Facebook page and whether it would be considered incitement to trespass.

Ms Ward explains that this is one of the issues that the Animal Defenders Office is concerned by. She notes that given the language used in the Bill the Office is concerned there would be ramifications for those who choose to share the Aussie Farms website or retweeted comments suggesting trespass.

Ms Ward goes on to say that the decision to add the nuisance shield is highly concerning, especially with regards to changes in farming practices to more intensive farming which would likely impact neighbours.
