England, UK: Live Animal Export Protest At Dover Grow Ever Stronger – People Are Disgusted By The Trade – Photographs and Video Links Below.

England

Dover, Kent, England.

The protests to stop live animal exports to mainland Europe continue to grow stronger all the time.  Here below are a few links to photographs and videos of the demonstrations in recent months.

The really good news is that after stopping all live exports for a period of no less than 6 weeks; the first shipment of 2014 took place on 10th January.  After a break of 6 weeks, a full consignment of livestock transporters was expected for this sailing.

In fact, only 2 livestock transporters arrived.  The vessel which carries them has a capacity of 7 or 8 transporters, so after 6 weeks, the vessel was operating at one quarter of its maximum capacity !

The protests will continue for however long it takes to stop the trade.  Protestors are growing in numbers for every sailing.  The entire export business through Dover is operated by a Dutchman.  The vehicles are Dutch and whole trade is of no benefit to the UK.  Animals are suffering big time on their shipments from the UK to Europe.  The vessel ‘Joline’ which carries the trucks sails between Dover UK and Calais, France.
