Live export day

Every year millions of farmed animals worldwide are subjected to the horrors of live transport. Join us this Sunday 14 June in calling to #BanLiveExports.

Farmed animals suffer enough without being forced to endure these traumatic journeys in crowded, stifling trucks, often for dozens of hours without food and water.

We see time and time again the tragedies caused by live exports. International outrage was sparked last year when over 14,000 sheep drowned when an overloaded vessel capsized off the Romanian coast.

Closer to home, judicial review proceedings have been started against the Scottish government to stop the export of unweaned calves on journeys over eight hours.

This Sunday 14 June we are joining Compassion in World Farming in calling on the Scottish government to stop defending this cruel trade, and for the UK government to end live exports once and for all.

You can join us in taking action this Sunday

  • Email the Scottish Government to urge them to drop their defence of the case: ciwf.org.uk/JusticeForCalves.
  • Tweet the Scottish Government from 10am on 14 June and be part of the global #BanLiveExports global Twitterstorm.
  • Share our #JusticeForCalves post below on the day.  Be sure to include #BanLiveExports in the copy your post!
