To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

The petition of the undersigned shows:

Opposition to the Live Sheep Export Trade on the grounds that it is inhumane in the extreme, is a contributing factor to unemployment within Australia, has adverse effects on residents and is environmentally harmful.

Your petitioners request that the Senate call upon the Australian Government to ban the export of live sheep immediately and actively pursue the frozen carcass alternative.

by Senator Bartlett (from 4,265 citizens).
