Ban Live Export Auckland | Scoop News


Many organisations and individuals have come together for
a Nationwide protest urging the government to ban live
export now, not in two years.

The Auckland
demonstration will meet at the town hall at 12 noon and
March down Queen Street to Te Komititanga Square at 12.30
for speeches.

“Potentially hundreds of thousands of
cows could be shipped to China before the 2 years is up,”
says co- organiser Anna Rippon. “MPI has already banned
shipment of animals for slaughter. The two-year delay is
concerning for the integrity of New
Zealand”

Co-organiser Deno Stock agrees. ” Two years
is too long. The prime minister should show that her concern
over animal welfare is genuine and not political posturing.
She should not continue to delay like she did after the
tragic loss of human and nonhuman lives in the ‘Gulf
Livestock 1’ last September.”

Co-organiser Kat
Worsfold points out that Damien O’Connor has admitted that
he could ban live export now if he wanted to. “The
government should put their ‘be kind’ mantra into practice
and remember the most abused and vulnerable members of our
society,” she
says.
