As any Aussie veg*n probably knows by now, the Australian government has placed a six month ban on sending live cattle exports to Indonesia.<br><br>
This is great news, however, the ban is only temporary at this stage and in the meantime, live exports are still continuing to Egypt and other ME countries. This needs to stop - permanently!<br><br>
Please show your support for a perma-ban by attending the <b>National Day of Action in your city.</b> Rallies are being held in all the major cities around the country. Just rock up to to Parliament House in your city this <b>Saturday June 18th from 12PM.</b><br><br><a href="http://www.nationaldayofactiontoendliveexport.com.au/" target="_blank">Further info</a>

Apologies, but I neither own nor watch the television.<br><br>
I don't read the news either (last time I looked at it, it was just the same old stuff, wars, murders etc etc..) why would I spend my time filling my brain with that?<br><br>
People I know tell me what's going on first hand if it's important.

Good turnout for this. Way more than I expected, and there were heaps of people honking their car horns in support as they drove by the rally. Good stuff.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Your people obviously let you down on this one. <img alt="" src="http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs12/i/2006/274/c/6/_wink__by_koffeeben.gif" style="border:0px solid;">

There is a 2nd national day of action for this coming up very soon. <img alt="" src="http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs29/f/2008/149/1/1/_protest__ANIMATED_by_orangefruits.gif" style="border:0px solid;"> Not all the details are finalised right now, but I'll probably make another thread closer to the time when they are.
