We’ve just returned from the Festival of Sacrifice. We knew Australian exporters would be cashing-in during this festival — fuelling the trauma and suffering of so many animals. But while they count their money, we’ve counted their ‘crimes’. And, with your help, they won’t go unpunished.
Click here to take action now. 10 investigators. 5 countries. 1 reason for hope… that’s you, Elizabeth. If we weren’t in Malaysia this year then countless cruelties against gentle sheep and goats would have gone unnoticed. Illegal sales were rife. Terrified goats cried out in sheer panic as they were manhandled before having their throats hacked open. In one horrifying location, Australian sheep were being hung by their necks from the rafters, while still alive.
If our investigators weren’t in Kuwait we wouldn’t have damning footage from inside an Australian-accredited slaughterhouse, showing illegal abuses of Aussie sheep. Because we were on the ground in Dubai, Lebanon and Oman we have a catalogue of evidence against exporters showing sheep being stuffed into car boots in scorching heat, sold for backyard slaughter, and crudely killed in the streets.
Please speak out for these animals — demand action today. The presence of our investigators is one of the things this industry fears most. But do you know what else they fear? It’s you, Elizabeth. Because they know that every time you speak out — political and public support for live export diminishes.
So thank you for taking urgent action for these animals today. For the animals,
Lyn White AM Campaign Director
P.S. Please help us keep our investigators in the field where animals need us most. Any small gift you can make today will help provide these animals with the representation they desperately need.
P.P.S. If you’d like to stand up against cruelty, corruption and animal abuse, then this Sunday in Sydney and Perth stand with us — and thousands of other caring Australians — in a rally for animals that no government will be able to ignore. If you can’t be there in person, join us in spirit, by following us live on Facebook.
