Ethical Farming Ireland organised 2 protests in Cork during 2020. On both occasions, a group of volunteers gathered to oppose the shipments of young bulls who were being exported to Libya to be slaughtered.

Protests are a very important part of our work in helping to raise awareness among members of the public. The greater a light we can shine on this industry, the more power we have to create meaningful change for the animals.

Once it’s considered safe to do so, we’ll be organising future live export protests around the country. Keep up to date with our events via Facebook, and by subscribing to the EFI newsletter.


Protest against live export of pigs to China – October 2021

EFI gathered alongside My Lovely Pig Rescue and Animal Rebellion in Dublin to ask the Minister for Agriculture Charlie McConalogue to reverse his decision to send live pigs to China. We stand firm in our opposition to all live exports and will continue to fight for animals who are forcibly exported for breeding and slaughter.


This year saw International Awareness Day continue online instead of our usual in-person gathering. We had a brilliant turnout for 2021! Thanks to everyone who took part in someway.  We couldn’t do this without your ongoing commitment and support.
