Australia: Live Exports Breaking News – Emanuel Exports Licence Has Now Been Suspended.

Brilliant News !

This was the export company who were filmed during voyages to the Middle East; which showed the immense suffering and horrific conditions on the ship during the animals journey.

Watch the conditions and suffering in the videos on our old post – link here:

Mark, in almost 11 weeks since 60 Minutes showed horrific routine conditions on board live export ships, hundreds of thousands of Australians have emailed, written, phoned and rallied to stop live sheep exports.

 

Today, we received incredible news.

Around 4.45pm today, we received word that the Department of Agriculture has suspended Emanuel Exports’ live export licence.

This follows the news we shared with you earlier in the week, that Livestock Shipping Services, Australia’s other largest live sheep exporter, was halting exports for the Middle Eastern summer this year.

Together, these two businesses account for almost all live sheep exports from Australia.

We have long said that if the laws were enforced, live export would become impossible. This is proof of that.

Make no mistake, Emanuel’s is not the exception. What we saw in the 60 Minutes footage included routine conditions across multiple voyages. This is what long-haul live sheep export looks like, and it must not be allowed to continue.

This is a crucial step toward the inevitable end of live sheep exports.

Email your MP and Senators to tell them, now is the time for government to put Australia’s best interests first: protect our animals, provide certainty for the future, and legislate for a phase-out of live sheep exports.
