As you read this, thousands of gentle sheep are trapped inside ships like this. They can't lie down without being trampled. Some can't reach food or water. Soon, these ships will turn into giant ovens, literally 'cooking' some animals alive. The Australian Government is under intense pressure to end this. Which means your voice is more powerful today than ever. Will you use it?
STAY LOUD: Australian Senators have voted to end the cruel sheep export trade — this is HISTORIC. Sadly, the legislation stalled in the House of Reps, where the Morrison government refused to allow all MPs a vote :( With a Federal election just around the corner, we need to keep this issue on the political agenda. Pease urge your Senator to support an end to live export. UPDATE: Every day that live exporters continue to send animals into harm's way, the Australian Government needs to hear about it!
I've seen extremely moving video of live sheep being tortured on board live export ships going to the Middle East. I'm hoping to know whether you've had any meetings with local gov, and asked whether they've seen the video evidence?

You're giving a critical voice to those who have none. Our government is really feeling the pressure now. Together, we can hold them to account while animals are forced to suffer and die on ships. Watch out for tomorrow's 1 minute action for animals. We will send you a friendly reminder!
... here's a message just for you.
Hundreds of thousands of people have spoken out against live sheep export cruelty.
Shocking footage of the routine suffering of Australian sheep at sea caused massive public and political outrage. Months later, the trade is unravelling:
21st March 2019: Despite promises to make science-based decisions, the Department of Agriculture ignores the science - and the evidence of animal suffering - to announce it will allow sheep shipments to the Middle East in the high-risk month of May. Read our response here.
9th January 2019: UPDATE | Where to next for the live export campaign in 2019?
4th December 2018: The live export industry has announced its own three-month ban on the sheep trade to the Middle East during the northern summer — but conceded it cannot guarantee against another mass death at sea.
31 October 2018: The independent Moss Review into the culture and capabilities of the Department of Agriculture has been released — and the findings are damning.
10th September 2018: The Australian Senate has passed a bill to phase out live sheep exports over a five-year period and stop trade to the Middle East during the hottest part of the year.
22nd August 2018: Emanuel Exports — the company at the centre of the horrific live exports scandal involving the deaths of thousands of sheep from heat stress at sea — has had its licence to export animals permanently cancelled by the Federal Department of Agriculture!
Right now we're at a critical point in our efforts to end sheep export cruelty. Every person who stands up against this industry in the coming days and weeks is fuelling a historic shift.
