Australia: The Commonwealth Games Happy, Dancing Closing Ceremony Does Not Fool Us – Australian Government – You Are Animal Abusers.

SAV Comment

We have just endured the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games from the Gold Coast.  All happy Australians singing and dancing; people from a nation which supports such an animal abusing industry and government.  We could not see anything to sing and dance about – the images of the livestock ships represent the real side that the Australian government want to keep closed.  So we give the video footage for you once again to see what Australia is really about. 


Regarding our recent post – 

we now have the following update from Animals Australia.


This time last week, only live exporters knew the horrors that await every sheep who boards their ships. Now, their secret’s out. And the world is watching.

Nearly 200,000 people added their voice to yours, demanding urgent action. Everyone from Bill Shorten to Israel’s First Lady are ‘shocked’ and ‘disturbed’ by the damning evidence. Calls to shut down the cruel live sheep trade — especially during the deadly northern summer — are escalating.

But Mark, our Government is about to condemn more animals to suffer on live export ships. Only this time, they’re doing it knowing how extreme their suffering will be.

Right now, the ship featured in last Sunday’s explosive 60 Minutes story is docked in Fremantle, Western Australia. The export company responsible for subjecting millions of animals to extreme, routine suffering is preparing to load tens of thousands more animals onto its ‘ship of shame.’

As it stands, it looks like the Australian Government is going to let them.

Not only that — some 85,000 animals have already left our shores on another ship this week. Outrageously, this exporter was allowed to pack the maximum number of animals possible into his vessel. We know what that looks like.

If you’re angry — you’re not alone.

The decision to allow a single animal to set foot onto any of these ships while the entire world is reeling from images of faeces-covered sheep cooking alive, panicked animals gasping for air, piles of dead and rotting bodies, and distressed animals unable to reach food or water … it’s unconscionable.

We cannot — and will not — watch on while more animals suffer.

As you read this, our campaign team is working around the clock to dial up the heat on this cruel trade. In the coming days, we’ll be unveiling what I promise you will be sheep exporters’ worst nightmare. And tonight, 60 Minutes will be airing explosive new footage of live export cruelty obtained by Animals Australia investigators.

Every time the Australian Government allows rich export companies to break laws and subject thousands of gentle animals to abuse … we’re going to turn up the spotlight a little brighter.

If you’re outraged that our Government is willing to let more animals languish on live export ships, you can let them know by:

  1. Calling the Prime Minister’s office on 02 9327 3988 (International callers: +61 2 9327 3988)

  2. Calling Australia’s Agriculture Minister, David Littleproud’s office: 02 6277 7630 (International callers: +61 2 6277 7630)

  3. Calling your MP’s office: click here for the number (Australian residents only)

Mark, this past week we’ve been utterly overwhelmed by your outpouring of support. The victims of this industry have the world on their side.

Thank you,

Lyn White AM
