Take Action Now Over German Live Exports – It Is German Election Time – We Can Be A Voice.

 

Dear Mark,

I received this mail petition from Animals Angels today and would like to send it to you.


It goes to the Federal Minister of Christianity and the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture, in Germany.


Now it is the elections and maybe we can achieve something.


In any case it is important that many nationalities sign, so that Agrarminister Schmidt finally notes that the whole world is informed of his hostile animal policy.

And because EU is Germany, it is important to put pressure on him.

In the name of the animals, thank to all who participate

The situation:

Germany has already exported more than 13,676 cattle and calves to Turkey, as well as 331 cattle to Iraq.

Support our work for the animals with the invitation to the German authorities to stop exports of live animals to Turkey and Iraq.


We had a few problems yesterday, but now we can provide the email address for the letter to the minister, here is it:

This is the letter to copy and send in German

 

“An Bundesminister Christian Schmidt und das Bundesministerium für Ernährung und Landwirtschaft:

Wir fordern Sie dazu auf, den Export lebender Tiere in die Türkei sowie in den Irak zu stoppen.

Auf Ihrer Internetseite lesen wir folgendes: „Aus Gründen des Tierschutzes sollen Transporte über lange Strecken soweit wie möglich vermieden werden.

Doch im Jahr 2016 hat Deutschland 29.368 Rinder und Kälber zur Zucht, Mästung oder Schlachtung in die Türkei exportiert.

Die deutschen Tierschutzgesetze werden jedoch nicht mitexportiert, vielmehr werden die Tiere ihrem Schicksal überlassen.

Dies lässt sich in keinem Sinne mit dem im Grundgesetz verankerten Staatsziel Tierschutz vereinen.“

This is the English version of the same letter.


“To Federal Minister Christian Schmidt and the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture:

We ask you to stop exporting live animals to Turkey and Iraq.

On your website, we read the following: “For reasons of animal welfare, transports over long distances are to be avoided as much as possible.”

But in 2016, Germany exported 29,368 cattle and calves to Turkey for breeding, fattening or slaughtering. 

But the law is not exported with the animals, they are left to their fate instead. This can not be reconciled in any sense with the goal of animal protection laid down in the Basic Law of Germany.”
