Last night the Australian public was yet again collectively lied to by the Australian live export industry; desperately trying to claim world’s best practice and not withdrawing their motto of “ No pain, no fear”.
A 60 Minutes exposé from brave onboard whistleblower Faizal Ullah showed images that could never be refuted.
Faizal was a navigational officer who immediately saw the injustice and cruelty of the live export trade and bravely filmed atrocities that the live export industry repeatedly deny happen and would prefer kept in the dark.
The bravery, ethics and integrity of this seafarer from Pakistan should be a lesson for us all. I am so proud that a seafarer has made world news for all the right reasons, against a trade that doesn’t deserve to exist.
Unfortunately the TV show was not long enough to scratch the surface of his evidence.
The video below contains footage of what the animals and crew of this trade endure.
It is not the massive industry its advertised as, it is however a massive animal welfare disaster.
