UK: Global Day of Action Against Live Animal Export – 13/9/17.

https://stoplivetransport.org/

Dear Mark,

Every year millions of animals around the world endure horrific suffering as a result of the long distance live transport trade.

On the 13th September we are organising a rally in central London as part of Stop Live Transport International Awareness Day. A global day of action to speak out on behalf of the animals that cannot speak for themselves.

In the UK, for decades politicians have said that it is EU law that prevents a ban on live exports. As we are now leaving the EU, this argument no longer stands.

They are out of excuses and we need to make sure that they know we expect action. Confirmation of the London rally’s exact location will follow in due course, but I wanted to get in touch with you now, so that you could save the date.

 

Can’t make it to London? Why not attend a local Stop Live Transport event, or even organise your own? Check out the events already planned – from Edinburgh to Tel Aviv, from Dublin to Warsaw – at stoplivetransport.org

Together we will demonstrate global opposition to this abhorrent trade and expose the ugly truth:

– Excessively long journeys without sufficient food, water or rest

– Animals being transported when sick, injured, very young or heavily pregnant

– Ill-equipped and overcrowded vehicles

– Exports from countries with animal protection laws to those that have none, with animals often facing terrible abuse both during transport and at the time of slaughter.

I hope that you can join us on the 13th September to use your voice for those who are voiceless. Even if you cannot be there in person, you can still get involved in the Stop Live Transport International Awareness Day in many other ways.

Thank you so much for your support.

Emma Slawinski
