What do Ivanhoe Girls Grammar School kids talk about when they hang out? Which of the Voice contestants is their favourite, how annoying little brothers are, how to bring down factory farming, .... wait, WHA???

Six students from Ivanhoe Girls Grammar School have decided that they aren't going to stand for factory farming anymore. So they're taking it to the government. "The current treatment of animals in factory farming is an injustice and unacceptable," says team leader Gloria Deng. She and her five team mates will debate for 'The Abolishment of Factory Farming' at the 27th Annual Victorian Youth Parliament this July. "We are fighting to ensure that no animal experiences the inhumane practices of factory farming."

Factory farming is one of the biggest causes of animal cruelty today. Can you believe that it's legal to cut bits and pieces off conscious animals in factory farms? Hopefully Ivanhoe Girls team will help the government to realise that this has got to stop.

Personally, I have never been more excited about Parliament. Did you know that more than 25 Bills have passed through Youth Parliament and gone on to become Victorian legislation? I smell number 26 ...

Sending all my luck to you girls! You have one hell of a cheer squad behind you – me plus the millions of pigs and chickens who need us to create a kinder world. Thank you for helping their plea to be heard!
