The Rock-itt : January 2014
to make this country Australia, even more rich and prosperous than it is already and considering all the natural wealth that we have at our disposal, we still lower our standards as human beings by allowing our agricultural minister to ship our livestock overseas to be treated like a waste product of our wealthy Australian society. There were some small rumours circulating that there would be a start to phasing out Live Exports beginning in 2016. But who is willing to believe this scuttlebutt which is only a political ploy to take pressure off the agricultural department, until the next massacre happens and they have to face the outcry once more by the Australian public and the Animal Rights Groups. I want to see something in black and white NOW! I want our friends THE GREENS in the senate to turn up the pressure and push for a decree to be gazetted that in fact Live Exports will seise at a designated date and that this will actually be made a law that the Australian government must adhere to! See you next month ......PETE! BAN LIVE EXPORTS & STOP ANIMAL CRUELTY! Join an Animal Rights Group NOW! “T with Pete Johnson Hi and welcome back to Pete’s Soap Box! If you managed to read last month’s Soap Box and saw the graphic photo’s of our noble animals being murdered at the festival in Jordan and were incensed, horrified, disgusted shocked and believe that photo’s like these should not be published where the Australian public can be sickened by their graphic detail, well bad luck! I don’t have the slightest pity, conscience, or regret about revealing the atrocities which the people of Australia are allowing to happen to our beautiful Aussie animals and I hope that you were sickened to your gills. These noble creatures which have fed and clothed us for the past 200 years and which has made this country rich and prosperous are allowed to be shipped on mass every month to places whose people cannot even treat each other with respect and dignity let alone animals. I find this distressing and disturbing that the majority of us are not lifting a finger to stop it! and barbaric, carried out by barbaric races of humans. But if we didn’t send them, it would not be happening, so let’s stop it here now in our own backyard and not pretend we are shocked when revelations hit the headlines of the holocaust which we the Australian people are guilty of! Because the crime starts here at the beginning of the chain and the buck stops with us! All we are sayyying.... Is give them a chance! “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”...Mahatma Gandhi If you think I sound angry!........ WELL YOU’RE DAMN RIGHT I’M ANGRY!!!!!!! I’m angry because I know that many more millions of our animals, birds, and sea-life, will suffer agony just While we Australians sit on our hands procrastinating the suffering and pain to our own livestock is nothing short of horrendous
