EU: A factory of animal slavery !

 

EU- Flagge

 

The currently extremely hot temperatures make the already burdening animal transports for many cattle, sheep and goats a torture. Despite maladministration in transporting animals to third countries for years, especially during the hot summer months, long-distance transports to countries outside the EU are still authorized and implemented.

And that, although it has long been known, that the EU Transport Ordinance is regularly violated. In addition, as in previous years, the situation is getting worse as a result of long waiting times at the border in the heat – as is currently the case on the Turkish-Bulgarian border.

“There is an immediate need for action on the part of the German Federal Government: at these extreme temperatures and as long as it is not ensured that European animal welfare standards are met, live animal transports may no longer be handled,” claims Thomas Schröder, President of the German Animal Welfare Association. It is also high time that the EU Transport Regulation is revised, including an international limitation of animal transport to eight hours. “In the long term, it must be the goal to stop transporting live animals, but to slaughter at the nearest slaughterhouse and carry out chilled meat or semen instead of breeding animals,” said Schröder.

“Extreme situation at Turkish-Bulgarian border”

According to the Eurogroup for Animals, a truck with 57 cattle from France and the Czech Republic was currently waiting for days at the Turkish-Bulgarian border without water or food supplies at temperatures above 35 degrees. Cases like this are not an isolated case. Especially in the warm summer months it comes in the vans to temperatures above 35 degrees. These extreme climatic conditions and the situation at the Turkish-Bulgarian border with hours to days of waiting, without adequate care of the animals, leads to unnecessary suffering in the animals. Serious violations of the EU Transport Regulation have thus long been the order of the day. The laws of the Regulation are not respected until the destination, as the European Court of Justice ruled in its judgment in 2015.

In September 2017, the serious abuses at this border crossing were documented by the EU Commission, but without consequences – the situation for the animals is unchanged.

Australia: The Federal Department of Agriculture has confessed to a shocking blunder. Read On ….

BREAKING NEWS: Federal Court CaseMark,

Only weeks ago, I walked into the Federal Court alongside our legal team to make our case against the cruel live export trade. An expedited trial was granted, and now, just days before it was to begin, something astonishing has happened…

The Federal Department of Agriculture has confessed to a shocking blunder.

They’ve admitted they acted with legal ‘error’ in allowing 58,000 Australian sheep to be exported to the Middle East in June, on board an Emanuel Exports ship.

Incredibly, the Department official who signed off on the export permit did not hold appropriate power of delegation to do so. This means thousands of animals were shipped from our shores unlawfully.

Winning our case through the sheer ineptness of the Department of Agriculture was not our plan! However, it does allow us to highlight, once again, that the Department is unfit to act as the regulator of this cruel trade.

That they can quite literally ‘forget’ to tick a box only strengthens what we’ve always known: animals should not be left in the hands of a Department that simultaneously promotes and ‘regulates’ the live export trade.

AA legal 1

This ‘win’ doesn’t signal the end of our legal action against this cruellest of trades — and both the Department and exporters know it.Just last week our legal team was working day and night preparing to injunct a live sheep shipment from leaving Australia. Our willingness to take this unprecedented legal action was a key reason for an Eleventh Hour intervention by the Department, that saw the exporter’s licence suspended.

It means that this company — that has built its export empire on the suffering of animals — is not allowed to ship even one more animal.

This suspension of another major export company, alongside our court ‘win’, will have rocked both the regulator and the industry to their core.

The fight to outlaw this cruel trade isn’t over yet, however the battle lines are shifting.

Despite a worldwide outcry against this terrible trade, the Kuwaiti importer will still be desperately scrambling for another way to ship these sheep over the coming weeks. And we’ll to continue to do whatever it takes to stop them.

Each day, our efforts on behalf of these animals are intensifying, and Mark, your ongoing support is critical.

There are just weeks left until two historic Bills come before Parliament that could spell the end of this trade. Until then, it’s crucial we continue to give these animals the best possible representation — on prime time TV and in Parliament, on the pages of national newspapers and in the Federal Court of Australia.

AA Legal 2

What happens over the coming weeks will help create history.

Right now, 45,000 sheep are standing in a feedlot on the outskirts of Fremantle. Whether or not they’ll suffer a voyage into the blistering Middle Eastern summer depends, in large part, on us. These sheep may

While they may be unaware of the almighty battle being waged on their behalf — we will continue to do everything in our power to prevent even one more of these gentle souls from setting foot on board a live export ship.

It’s Thursday night (4 July), about 19 clock, as a patrol car a heavy truck on the highway 6 in Sinsheim striking. As always, when officials feel strange about a vehicle, they stop it. The first thing they notice: The animals are penned in the transporter in the smallest space.
