I would urge anyone who has even the slightest degree of compassion for other living beings on our planet to become involved in the campaign to stop this barbaric trade from passing through Ramsgate Port. Come down to the Port when a shipments are taking place and see for yourself the conditions the animals are transported in. Forced to spend hours and often days travelling tightly packed into trailers awash with urine and faeces and with limited access to food and water and then to face a grisly end to their lives through ritual slaughter. Stand and up and be counted and join the 100s of Thanet people – women and men, young and old who have been fighting this cruel spectacle since it came to Ramsgate in 2011.

A public meeting to discuss the return of the trade to Ramsgate and the campaign against it is being held upstairs at the Oak, Harbour Parade, Ramsgate on Tuesday 19th July. Please come along and find out more. I will also be posting dates and times of shipments on my blogsite and Facebook, but the shipments generally take place at short notice.
