ATAAC | Australian Teens Against Animal Cruelty - Port Adelaide Live Export Protest

I've just returned home from the third protest to ban live exports in Adelaide this week.

I was joined by over 300 animal lovers lined outside the gates of the Port Adelaide Inner Harbour docks.

This is the site where 67,000 sheep were being offloaded from a broken down ship onto crammed trucks, where they would be sent to temporary feedlots North of Adelaide whilst repairs to the ship are being made.

The ship was originally destined for The Middle East over a week ago, where mechanical problems forced the converted car-carrier to turn back a day into the voyage.

The sheep have clearly suffered enough, as several hundred sheep have already died during this stressful process, where conditions on the ship are far from comfortable for these animals but unfortunately they are scheduled to be loaded back on once repairs are complete.

 

Secret photographs reveal the crammed conditions that these sheep have to endure throughout their usual typical 3 week voyage, which are considered ‘acceptable' by the industry profiting at the expense of the animals.

It was heartbreaking to vision first hand, the sheep crammed into the trucks as I felt their fear, frustration, confusion and angst that they do not deserve anymore than any other living creature whether it be a cat or a dog.

We were all demanding that these sheep are spared any more suffering and are not exported to the Middle East.

We were also there to demonstrate, that even though the Government has failed to listen to our cries and demands to ban this barbaric trade as evident in Thursday's vote; we will NEVER give up or lose hope.

Like previous protests, there was a broad range of media coverage that provided a crucially important source in respect to getting our message across the Nation and Globe.

However, until there is a total ban to live exports from Australia, we will continue to stay strong and push for a conscious change that will spare the pain and suffering of these helpless animals.

- Hayley Richards, Anti-Live Export Ambassador reporting from Port Adelaide
