Stand with KAALE against live exports

The government, police and the industry working in concert to shut down campaigners.

Occasions like these demonstrate that you really couldn’t get a fag paper between authorities paid to protect animals, and those making fortunes out of enslaving and killing them.

When the vulnerable are abandoned by the law, we all have a duty to take action ourselves.

Please send a message of solidarity to Kent Action Against Live Exports. let them know you stand with them.

 

 

 

Live exports must end

Disappointing to see no explicit commitment to end live exports in today’s queen’s speech. UK Govt. has pledged to consult on transport of animals.

Scotland for Animals will work to ensure any legislation includes a ban on exports for slaughter and fattening after leaving EU.

 

 

 

Live export conditions; Scottish Government needs to act now.

We were at the Scottish Government offices at Saughton House today, protesting the signing off of live export journeys in unacceptable conditions.

Scotland for Animals member Kay Hamilton, Dowager Duchess of Hamilton, requested to speak to Government Chief Veterinary officer Sheila Voas, and Agriculture and Rural Economy Directorate’s Phil Burns to discuss issues.

A government official has agreed that a meeting will now be arranged.

 

 

New welfare proposals don’t go anywhere near far enough

The Scottish Government has this morning announced it’s Animals and Wildlife (Penalties, Protections and Powers) (Scotland) Bill.

Assurances that Scotland’s inadequate and ineffective animal welfare legislation would be properly strengthened have not been honoured.

Scotland for Animals believes that the Bill is an opportunity to secure real protection for animals, but in it’s current form is grossly deficient.

Animal abuse must now be recognised in law as a crime against society, and procedures of reporting, investigation, prosecution and penalty must reflect this.

Throughout the progress of this Bill we ask that you support us in pressing government and MSPs to make changes.

We can’t, and won’t allow them to continue to leave animals vulnerable.
