Stay informed - Read the FACT SHEETS including Bill, ,Brian, Dudley Tommy and Arthur?s story click here.http://www.banliveexport.com/#downloadFactsheets
Read about how the Australian Government has spent tax payer funds on the cruel restraint boxes which encourage and reinforce torture and brutality of our animals in Indonesia. These restraint boxes would give rise to a prosecution under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act if used in Australia. Read about how the Australian government knew about the cruelty to Australian animals and ignored the problem. They are only doing something now because of media attention and public pressure. And it?s an unsatisfactory response?just a 6 month temporary suspension on live export to Indonesia. What about the other animals transported to other destinations who suffer similar cruelty. What about the horrendous conditions animals suffer en route and the enormous number of animals who die and who are injured before they even arrive?
We need your help to keep this issue in the news and to keep the pressure on our politicians.

How do you sleep at night? Do you even have a conscience? You are a blight and a disgrace to Australia. May you get what you deserve, as you will .... eventually.

CRONULLA MALL 2 JULY 2011
We had a great day at our Stall at Cronulla Mall last Saturday 2nd July.
We made $659, which was pretty good considering we apparently had to compete with a big Zumba Festival at Miranda Fair on the same day.
We were there to set up at 8.30am and ran the stall until about 3.30pm, and had a steady stream of customers, who were keen to chat to us about live export, as well as search out goodies on our stall.
Our cooks out did themselves with all sorts of fabulous tasty treats which looked like they had just come from an elegant French patisserie!
We had scrumptious chocolate brownies, yummy muffins, delicious chocolate cream tarts and profiteroles (most of which went in one go!) .
Delectable rocky road and more! We sold the small goodies for $1 and the big goodies for $2 each.
Carol, our talented craftswoman kindly donated several lovely handmade and beaded scarves for us to sell.
Clancy kindly donated some clever handmade recycled bags, made from stock feed bags (We loved that idea)!
We had lots of great books, DVDS and a good selection of plants..
Thank you also to Faye our local artist who kindly donated some lovely handmade cards and childrens books.
Pam did a great job with her clipboard duties, out and about talking to the public and getting more signatures on our petition.
We got another hundred signatures on our petition to ban Live Export, for Animals Australia.
The Leader came down and took some photos for a story about SPRAs Ban Live Export campaign which is likley to be in the Leader tomorrow.
Many thanks to:
Kelly who co-ordinated our roster
Melissa who organised our printed flyers
Our generous cooks and donors including Faye, Lisa, Tania, Kate S, Kate, Carol, Dianne, Halina, Sarah
Our hard working helpers on the stall, including Beth, Kate,Carol, Wendy, Lucy, Michelle, Jane, Pam
Our next stall will be on 6 August 2011 - hope to see you all there

Regional and rural protesters to meet at Local Government (Council) buildings
This is the OFFICIAL event for the NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION TO END LIVE EXPORT
Organiser: Dr Patricia Petersen (with support from Animals Australia and RSPCA)
High profile figures including the Dalai Lama were invited to speak, Federal and State Senators, Federal and State MPs and Mayors.
This national event is "apolitical" in that all politicians, all political candidates from all parties are urged to attend and participate in it. Politicians who oppose live exports and wish to speak on the day are invited to contact Dr Patricia Petersen.
Please be brave and stand up for what is right. Please support the ban on live export!
More details at www.nationaldayofactiontoendliveexport.com.au
This protest is not being planned by SPR&A but we will support it in any way we can.
