1. Contact the Prime Minister
Let Julia Gillard know that you think this treatment of Australian animals is completely unacceptable and you want the see the trade in cattle to Indonesia suspended immediately along with an overall end date to live animal exports. The most powerful way to be heard is an individually written letter. Please feel free to ask for help with this. The PM's contact details are:
The Hon Julia Gillard MP

2. Contact your Federal and State MP
