My office has received over 1500 letters and emails in the aftermath of the shocking reporting into unsafe practices involving the live export trade.
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 Turnbull - end the cruelty now.
