Live Exports

Australian Workers Film Guide


Presented by Grant Courtney, Federal President of the Australasian Meat Industry Employees Union (AMIEU), this campaign video argues for the abolishment of Australia’s live export trade and the introduction of a sustainable onshore chilled meat export industry. The video states that over 20,000 jobs have been lost to the live export trade, with many of these jobs in rural and regional areas. Various speakers also underscore the unacceptable cruelty involved in live exports, with up to 40,000 animals dying en-route every year. The live export industry is also subject to precarious international markets, with countries such as Indonesia seeking to end live imports.
