(Images: 'Egypt exposed,' Animals Australia)
Dear Joel (my federal member for Hunter) and George (my state member for Upper Hunter),
have written to you before on this matter, and this terrible trade is
still going on. You said you were going to stop it. To watch the cruelty
exposed on The 7:30 Report is unbearable.
How can you let this happen?
How can Australia sit by and pretend that it'll be all ok once we've sorted it out (which we never do)?
can we be so arrogant to think that we can keep an eye on these poor
animals and guard them against acts of cruelty from our sunny shores?
How can we ever be sure what exactly happens to these poor wretched animals when they are so far away in other lands?
is enough - ban live export now. Open up the abattoirs here again, make
the meat producers pay proper Australian wages - ban live export now.
here on in, I refuse to vote at any election state or federal until
you, our elected representatives, provide solid assurances that this
wicked practice is to be stopped now.
leaving Australia ought to leave 'already dead' - I cannot bear being part
of this commercial cruelty. Whilst Australian governments refuse to ban
this ghastly practice, their dreadful tortuous deaths are done in our
BAN LIVE ANIMAL EXPORT NOW.
Yours in abject misery at what I can't watch on The 7:30 Report,
(published at 'Freedom Cyclist' too)
