End Live Sheep Exports

Labor wants to end cruelty in the live sheep export industry. 

It’s clear this is unsustainable and simply has not changed for the better - despite constant promises and many reviews. 

The Government had a chance to act in a meaningful way - it failed.

Labor will stop the northern summer sheep trade at the first opportunity and phase out all live sheep exports over time.

This is about ending the cruelty and supporting our sheep farmers to be sustainably profitable in the future, creating more local jobs. 

Sign the petition and send a message to Morrison - end the cruelty now.

    Thrilled to see the Bill to ban live sheep export pass the Senate on Monday, but extremely disappointed to see it fail in the House of Representatives, and not even given the opportunity for debate. The overwhelming majority of Australians want an end to live sheep export. Our political representatives must, therefore, be given the opportunity to represent those Australians, and that is to vote on this Bill. To be prevented from doing so is an insult to our parliamentary democracy, and a tragedy for animal welfare.

    The live export trade has repeatedly shown it’s incompetence and greed, not even thinking to limit the numbers carried by, say, the amount which normally has to die en-route, nor choosing appropriate times to ship. They lack the imagination to find ways of making their trade acceptable, yet maintain that it is sustainable. This is just a desperate money grab by people who can’t do their job properly. Send them back to TAFE. Oh, that’s right, TAFE is being removed. Like the ABC.
