Joe Ludwig is totally incompetent and despite repeated evidence provided over many months, has failed in his duty of care to protect Australian animals from barbaric conditions at the hands of murderers, and allowed the continuation of the live export trade.

The latest footage from abbatoirs in Egypt is yet another stain on Australia's shameful live export trade. We have had enough! We want live exports banned and all those who have been responsible for allowing the cruelty to continue over so many years to be held accountable.

To:
The Australian Government
Sack Joe Ludwig - Minister for Agriculture

Joe Ludwig is totally incompetent and despite repeated evidence provided over many months, has failed in his duty of care to protect Australian animals from barbaric conditions at the hands of murderers, and allowed the continuation of the live export trade.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Joe Ludwig displays again his incompetence and clear disregard for animal welfare. He needs to go.

      Mahatma Gandhi said "You can judge a nation by the way it treats its animals" Joe Ludwig is bringing nothing but shame upon Australia!! I have emailed Joe Ludwig’s office quite a few times in these past few days only for my emails to be ignored. I know they are going through because of the automated replies. But as such, no one has responded. The man is an obviously a ‘law onto himself’. He is totally ignoring the pain of growing number of Australian citizens through his cowardliness and arrogance. We cannot permit this fool to continue to miss-represent us with his cruel, heartless ‘need for greed’. How dare he ‘shut us out’!!

      As an advocate for the welfare of all sentient beings, over and above greed and profit, I am seething, to put it mildly, over the attittude of Joe Ludwig who continually repeats the old phrase; 'an isolated incident' every time these frequent crimes are revealed. Does the man know what the word 'isolated' actually means?

      Even if his own figures are right, which they have been proven time and again by Animals Australia, Voiceless and other organisations not to be; there are still far too many animals being tortured to death by these psychopaths who seem to enjoy taking out their testosterone-driven frustrations on defenceless animals.

      Would Joe Ludwig trust these people with the family dog when it came time to put the dog down? I don't think so. At least I would hope not!

      He is also putting thousands of Australians out of work by sending our animals to the Middle East to be slaughtered. How much longer are we going to put up with this madness and how many more times do we have to hear the words 'an isolated incident' come out of the mouth of Joe Ludwig who obviously has mates and vested interests in the industry of torture?

      It's time we brought Australia into the 21st century and banned live trade for good.
