MEDIA RELEASE 26.05.2012 - Candlelight Vigil, Parliament Lawns, Hobart - Saturday June 2 from 6.00p.m.

In the wake of the Government’s report into the latest violations by two live exporters, animal advocates in Hobart are holding a candlelight vigil for the anniversary of last year’s Four Corners program ‘A Bloody Business’.

‘A Year since we saw ‘Tommy’ shake....

Just 12 months ago, Australia watched in horror as ‘Tommy’ became the face of the torture of cattle at Indonesian slaughterhouses. Trembling with terror, he watched as other cattle were brutalised during slaughter whilst fully conscious. Cattle were beaten, had their leg tendons slashed, eyes gouged and tails broken to force them to slaughter.

Just a few short months after the Government’s failed ‘Exporter Supply Chain Assurance’ scheme was implemented in Indonesia and other export markets, Animals Australia was able to uncover the fact that nothing has changed, and the Government’s program was a complete and abject failure.

In Hobart, a candlelight vigil will be held to commemorate the animals who have suffered and died in live exports.

WHERE: Parliament Lawns, Hobart
WHEN: Saturday, June 2, 2012
TIME:  From 6.00p.m.
