"Kindness not cruelty": Peaceful protestors call for an end to live export horror
play play

In the lead-up to the Federal election, thousands of caring people have rallied in Australia — urging politicians to spare sheep from suffering onboard the 'ships of shame'.


LAST UPDATED: 6 August 2019

Peaceful protests in Adelaide and Melbourne have united thousands of people, urging the community to vote for kindness at the upcoming Federal election — and reminding politicians that the majority of Australians want the cruelty of live export to end.

Representatives from The Australian Labor Party (who have committed to phase-out live sheep export, if elected); The Animal Justice Party; The Australian Greens; RSPCA South Australia and Edgar's Mission Farm Sanctuary spoke, alongside our own Lyn White, to rapt audiences.

If you couldn't make it along to the rallies, you can still get a taste of the action in the video above — then please spare one minute to remind your local Member of Parliament or candidate that you want animals spared from suffering at the hands of the live export industry!
