Stop unstunned halal and kosher slaughter in the UK

The British people are against halal and kosher slaughter. Under British Law, animals must be stunned before slaughter, and not killed in full view of other animals. Halal and kosher slaughter is a cruel, barbaric way to slaughter an animal. Denmark, Sweden, Germany Norway and the Netherlands have banned halal slaughter, and as an animal loving nation, we are petitioning for the same to happen here. We are angry at the food industry for pandering to the minority group that want halal and kosher foods, and we want you to stand up and set an example that the halal and kosher slaughter method is wrong. It is completely unnecessary because the people who eat this food can say a prayer over the food which enables them to eat it.. We ask you to respect the wishes of the British people who are against it and insist all animals are stunned prior to slaughter. The Danish PM said animal rights have to come above religious rights, and we believe that in the year 2016, this is true. As well as the cruelty, Christians and Sikhs are forbidden to eat halal and kosher and since it is unlabelled, their religious rights are being violated. We therefore respectfully insist that all animals are stunned prior to slaughter, and that all halal and kosher foods are labelled clearly.
