Put an end to Brutality!

http://www.getup.org.au/campaigns/animals/live-export/ban-live-export please sign the petition for Getup to join the fight against Live Animal Exports to Indonesia (and the Middle East). They will be going to Parliament today, this morning, with Animals Australia and the RSPCA.

Click the link and add your email address. We must stop this cruel, inhumane and barbaric practice IMMEDIATELY. The Australian tax payer is actually contributing to this practice too which may come as a surprise to you

Please help

This isn’t a religious matter, it’s cultural. Outside of western, indeed let’s be honest Anglo-Saxon, cultures animal welfare simply isn’t a big concern, people welfare isn’t a particularly high priority either if it comes to that.

What’s so stupid about the abbatoir situation is that it’s actually easier, more efficient and safer to kill the beasts humanely and properly with a sharp blade than all that faffing around at huge risk of injury to the animal and the slaughterman.

Then again just watch Indonesians working on a building site or any other semi-skilled workplace and you quickly realise that concepts like health and safety, efficiency and proper practice aren’t considered particularly relevant to people’s jobs.
