Boycott Australia until they end the cruel live export trade
Thanks to a brave whistleblower, conditions for sheep on board five live export voyages from Australia to the Middle East were revealed on a 60 Minutes Australia program. https://www.9news.com.au/national/2018/04/08/21/06/60-minutes-live-export-sheep-vesselSign PetitionSign Petition
Sheep are stacked 10 storeys high, forced to stand for three weeks and can land in the Middle East summer on a vessel with a complete lack of ventilation. These poor animals stand in confined areas polluted by their own waste. On one voyage, 800 sheep died in one day from heat stress - that's one death every two minutes! As an Australian I am ashamed that we continue to engage in this industry and sadly our politicians and those in the live export industry seem to want to continue ignoring the facts that animal welfare is being breached. They are only concerned with profits and greed.
So please sign this petition and let's hit Australia in the hit pocket. Boycott Australia as a tourist destination and don't buy exports from Australia until our country gets the message that animal cruelty for profit should not be tolerated. https://secure.animalsaustralia.org/take_action/live-export-shipboard-cruelty/?ua_s=BLE.com - please also consider signing this petition.
