MEP Keith Taylor backs ‘Animals are Not Freight’ campaign

Tags:


A Green Party MEP for the south east has thrown his weight behind a campaign against live animal exports which will roll into Ramsgate this bank holiday weekend. Keith Taylor will be speaking at the first ever global day of action, called ‘Animals are Not Freight’, on Monday, which sees hundreds of campaigners from more than 30 countries uniting to take action, including a peaceful protest on Parliament Square in London.

The day commemorates 20 years since the world’s worst live export disaster when nearly 70,000 sheep burned or drowned to death as the ship carrying them burst into flames in the Indian Ocean and sank. Some twenty-eight organisations around the world are joining ranks for the day.

Kent Against Live Exports group are planning a demonstration in Ramsgate on Saturday. The MEP said “The campaign will mount a fresh call from national governments to amend European regulations to stamp out this inhumane practice.”
