Link to the OFFICIAL website for Australia’s national day of protest to ban live export.
The aim of the NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION TO END LIVE EXPORT is to provide ordinary Australians, public figures and politicians from all parties and of all political persuasions, the opportunity, on the same day, at the same time, right across Australia, to publicly voice their concerns about live export.
Millions of Australians are calling on the Australian federal government to permanently ban the shipping of cattle, sheep and other animals, to overseas destinations for slaughter.
There is no possibility of the Australian federal government guaranteeing the welfare of Australian animals when they are sent overseas. The live export market is costing Australia thousands of jobs within the meat processing industry and is harming Australia’s economy. Therefore, on both moral and economic grounds, the live export trade ought to be banned.
Numerous high profile figures, politicians and animal welfare advocates will be speaking on the day.
This national event is "apolitical" in that all politicians and all political candidates from all parties are invited to participate.
Parliament House - Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide, Perth and Darwin.
Regional/Rural protesters will congregate outside Local Government (Council) buildings.
*This is a national event for ALL town and cities across Australia. If your town isn't mentioned here, please advise your local media outlets that there will be a rally outside your local Council office, make a sign and show up with it on the day!
