As an Australian born citizen of this country and a country that I consider myself as part of the sector of animal lover, advocate, animal enthusiast-I have posted this in the general forum as the previous thread did not evoke all but one interest from an animal lover.
If I am in breach of spamming, I believe it to be for a cause that is developing into one of the largest atrocites this country has ever witnessed. Therefore, as an animal activist, I take that risk in the name of those that are suffering the most horrific suffering and torture daily.
I feel, that every animal forum should be enlightened to the full truth, the full details as every animal lover has contacts. The quicker that those against this form of animal abuse can amass numbers, the more pressure can be applied to the governing bodies.
The previous thread Cattle outcry that I posted in contains the full link for the video that all animal lover's need to see to the point (as best as their stomach, heart and soul can withstand-it is harsh, it is uncomfortable, it is soul twisting-yet a fraction of what those are withstanding, our cattle! Bill, the third animal-words fail me, I admittedly could look on no longer-half hour of torture, eyes gouged out (gone_ with prying fingers into the orbital cavity-by authority of our government and our taxes). This is the truth, the real footage.
Our government, whether you be left or right winged is allowing and perpetuating these disgusting, soul wrenching, acts-and paying for others to torture our cattle.
I feel offended that we are being spoken for and governed as to the delegation of my tax on something I do not consent to, nor want any hand in.
To have this chapter that is outraging not only Austrlian's but the world, declared complete, the time is NOW!
MY faith-my choice (Not offered to offend-an example of my frustration only in having another faith forced on me-to accept). purely my frustration.
"He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a
lamb, as if he cut off a dog's neck; he that offereth an oblation, as
if he offered swine's blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed
an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul
delighteth in their abominations."
================================================== ====================COPY petition at: GetUp! - Ban Live Export
This is incredible. In just 2 days, over 105,000 Australians have joined our campaign to end live animal exports. If you have seen this shocking footage of how Australian cattle are being treated, you know why.
We've just learned that 3 more boats of cattle are being loaded to depart for Indonesia tomorrow. The animals on those boats are bound for Indonesian slaughterhouses where they will be 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.
We're delivering the huge national petition to Agriculture Minister Joe Ludwig at 3pm tomorrow. Can you add your name now and forward this to friends and family?
GetUp! - Ban Live Export
So far, the Government have failed to stop more Australian cattle suffering, despite the shocking footage provided by Animals Australia and shown this week on ABC's Four Corners.
The Minister has committed to banning exports to 11 abattoirs in Indonesia. But that's not nearly enough. There are over 100 slaughterhouses in Indonesia, and only 8 are equipped with the stun technology that is standard here in Australia. Furthermore, animal welfare experts tell us that this partial ban will be impossible to enforce because of the way cattle exports work.
A huge public outcry right now, while the Government and the public are paying close attention, can ensure that not one more ship loaded with Australian cattle is allowed to leave an Australian port bound for these cruel Indonesian slaughterhouses.
