FARMING: Campaign for compassion

editorial image

August 29 marks the 20th anniversary of the world’s worst live animal export disaster when 67,488 sheep died on a burning ship in the Indian Ocean.

Every day farm animals endure suffering during long distance transport trade.

Compassion In World Farming is organising a global day of action and calling for the Minister of Farming to ban live exports from the UK.

Anyone who cares about animals could support CIWF.org on Animals Are Not Freight Day.
