Please join us in Dublin on 19th October outside the Dail for a protest against an inhumane and unnecessary industry. This is the 21st century, it is absurd to be shipping animals half way round the world just to be slaughtered when they get there. It is incredibly cruel transporting 15 day old calves on long journeys where they have to go over 24 hours with no feed. Now pigs will be flown to China for breeding, a country with no animal welfare legislation in place ranked G by World Animal Protection for farm animal welfare which is the lowest. Semen straws can be exported instead. Where does this fit in with the Animal Welfare Strategy? Where does this fit in with the Climate Action Plan? Enough is enough! It’s time to take a stand!
The protest is being held in conjunction with My Lovely Pig Rescue and pig welfare advisory group Muca Eireann. The majority of pigs in Ireland already have a terrible existence from birth to death and sending them on an 11 hour flight to China, where they have high rise pig factories and no requirement to stun before slaughter, just adds insult to injury. Pigs are beautiful, intelligent, inquisitive animals. No animal deserves to be treated this way. Please help them.
