People dressed as sheeps and cows lead a demonstration with more than 100 supporters of ARAN [Animal Rights Action Group] and Compassion in World Farming (CIWF) before delivering a letter into the Department of Agriculture,to bring attention to the ongoing live transport of tens of thousands of Irish farm animals who are sent abroad to suffer in ships. They await slaughter in countries that most often have little or no animal welfare standards….

    Who gives a flying fook…people really will complain about anything, their are far more important issues than having a luxury lounge for cows on ferries to make their journey comfortable as they await a bolt in the brain

      Lot’s of people give a flying fook. People with a conscience, unlike yourself apparently.

      They don’t get killed with a bolt in the brain. They have their throats cut.

      Well obviously you don’t give a fupp and if you think they don’t deserve to be treated with compassion and respect you should see how you’d like being trampled on , starved and left without water on a filthy boat for days on end to reach an outcome of death either way ,,, and it’s There are instead of their

    Shouldn’t we be more concerned with the passage and welfare of human refugees into Europe than this baloney?

        Yep Spaghetti Hoop, ARAN wont succeed in this…Id rather see the end of direct provision and helping refugees who are subject to degrading treatment on boats.

      It’s spelled bologna.

      I don’t like it, but there it is.

      Bolongna. Mahoney. America, huh?

      1. Spaghetti Hoop

        Yes, but isn’t it inappropriate and ignorant to lobby the government for action on a load of animals’ ‘feelings’ when we have humanitarian issues on the table?

            Raising awareness, researching and lobbying my elected representatives.
            I’d protest at the Dáil only there appears to be a Farmville-themed fancy dress party in the way.

            And I imagine you are involved in other campaigns too Hoop so I don’t get why you are being so sniffy about this one.

      Don’t worry Broadsheet will be covering this issue, as soon as it has milked the last drop out of the marriage referendum.

        @Joe the Lion – Yes exactly like that . If Animals need to die for food – their slaughter should be as quick and humane as possible – which would mean ‘pre stunned’ slaughter in Ireland. Their meat can be frozen and packed and then transported.

        1. Joe the Lion

          Well I totally agree Maciek. I honestly thought Ireland has outlawed live cattle exports a long time ago

          1. Maciek

            @Joe the Lion – Glad to hear someone who agree on this subject.
            Thanks for your comments and that you care about animals.

  3. Truth in the News

    Without the export of livestock, the Irish Meat Factories would pay the
    producers of livestock what they like, and whether ARAN likes it or not
    it will go on, if we are into animal welfare, what about the high incidence
    of TB in Badgers and Deer infecting both Cattle and endangering the health
    of Humans, there is something surreal about protesting about animal wefare
    exports when we examine the human misery on the hight seas right now.

      One can hold two points of view simultaneously you know. In fact some claim that makes us better than animals. I disagree however.

        One gets the sense Truth needs to concentrate Very Hard just to think about anything.
