Visit or Contact your State & Federal MP
Visiting or Contacting your State & Federal MP is one of the most powerful things you can do!
- Write a letter, outlining your concerns regarding the trade. An individually written letter is very powerful (for that reason we don’t provide you with a letter here). You can download our Letter Writing Tips document here
Visit your MP
Read the following real life volunteer story:
From a volunteer who had a meeting with their MP:
“I was a bit nervous about the meeting but I needn't have been as she was very friendly and welcoming (they are just people, after all). I made sure I mentioned the economic aspects as well as the animal welfare issues and she seemed very receptive and interested. By the end of the meeting she assured me she would watch the video that I left with her and that she would write to Joe Ludwig, the Minister for Agriculture. She was quite surprised by the percentage of people who are against live export and also by the numbers on the petitions”
If you live in WA, contact your State MP. You can find a listing of MP contact details here.
