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?
MILESTONE: The majority of Australian Senators have voted YES to a bill that would end the cruel sheep export trade — this is HUGE! The only thing standing in the way of this bill now becoming law is the Morrison government — and they're refusing to even let MPs debate it :( Please urge your Senator to keep this issue on the political agenda! UPDATE: Every day that live exporters continue to send animals into harm's way, the Australian Government needs to hear about it!
The global community is shocked by the live export footage onboard ships. As well as mainstream media reports, there have been rallies held all over the place.
Because you represent the Australian government, I want to ask whether you've had talks with the government, to show them this footage?
This shocking animal abuse has been hidden from everyone.
I really don't think any country would want to import live Australian sheep, once they were aware of how these animals were being mistreated.

... 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:
HUGE NEWS (10th September): 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: 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.
