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?
UPDATE: Every day that live exporters continue to send animals into harm’s way, your senators needthe Australian Government needs to hear about it!
I keep seeing headlines about cruelty to Australian animals in live-export. Everyone wants to know why nothing has been done. I'm interested to know whether you've had any meetings with government representatives, to ask whether they've seen the footage?
Locals would be outraged to see how sheep are being treated. The trade won't be meeting religious guidelines. I just don't see how any country would make the choice to purchase live sheep from Australia, once they knew how these animals were being transported.

... here's a message just for you.
Hundreds of thousands of people have spoken out against live sheep export cruelty.
Despite repeatedly promising to be guided by science, the Turnbull government has released a live export review by a compromised industry vet and will permit high-risk sheep shipments to the Middle East during the heat stress period — against the recommendation of the Australian Veterinary Association.
Liberal MP Sussan Ley has introduced a private member's Bill to Parliament to phase out live sheep exports, and another is expected in the Senate, with support from key Liberal MPs including Sarah Henderson, Jason Falinski, Jason Wood and Warren Entsch, Labor, the Australian Greens, Derryn Hinch and Centre Alliance. Labor has committed to ending the live sheep trade if elected.
The live export company responsible for sheep ‘cooking alive’ unbelievably, still has a licence to operate. And, despite overwhelming evidence of regulatory breaches, the Department of Agriculture continues to issue them export permits for ships loading animals at Fremantle and Adelaide.
But the political ground is shifting like never before, as every day more politicians, from all sides, call ‘time’ on this industry. And our hard-hitting TV campaign will keep the victims of live export in front of every caring person and decision maker while the future of this cruel trade is being deliberated.
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.
