Right now Australian cattle are being maimed and tortured before suffering the most painful deaths that the animal welfare movement has ever seen.
What's more, this callous slaughter is carried out in facilities that use equipment paid for by Australian taxpayers and inspected by Australian authorities.
Tomorrow officials are presenting a petition at Parliament House in a press conference with the RSPCA, Animals Australia, and the Australasian Meat Industry Employers Union (AMIEU). The urgent petition calls on Prime Minister Julia Gillard and Agriculture Minister Joe Ludwig to end the cruel practice of live cattle export.
Can you join the campaign and forward this to friends and family?
Warning: the video is hard to watch, but it's worth the discomfort if we can help prevent this happening to other animals.
