ABOUT 1000 protestors formed a human chain on the footpath of Fremantle’s Stirling Bridge last Sunday (October 6), calling for an end to live exports.
It was the ninth annual protest at the bridge and one of the saddest, says Stop Live Exports campaign manager Katrina Love.
“We came so close to getting the live sheep trade shut down forever…but Labor lost the un-losable election and we have three more years of a Liberal national coalition government.”
The diverse, well-behaved crowd included doctors, teachers, physios, business people, retirees, young mums, grandmothers, teenagers and tots.
Placard-wearing dogs were on their best behaviour and so was Judith, a cute lamb from an animal rescue centre.
