The Greens’ bill to ban live sheep exports has passed the Senate!
The only thing now standing in the way of this bill becoming law is Prime Minister Scott Morrison. We know that there is majority support in the House of Representatives if MPs are allowed a free vote.
Sign the petition to demand Scott Morrison allow a debate and free vote in the House of Representatives.
Tens of thousands of sheep are exposed to shocking cruelty every year when they are exported for overseas slaughter.
The Greens are working with animal welfare activists to end live exports. We want to see improved and increased processing in Australia to support local producers, create jobs and protect sheep from inhumane treatment.
A debate and vote in the House of Representatives is the vital next step to protect animal welfare.
