Morrissey Asks Barnaby Joyce: Stop the Live-Export ‘Slow Boat to Hell’
As Morrissey wraps up his Australian tour, the music legend and animal advocate fired off a letter to Barnaby Joyce, Australia’s Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources and Deputy Prime Minister, urging him to put “the live-export industry out of its misery”.
Every year, Australia exports millions of live animals to countries in the Middle East and Asia, a gruelling trip that may take weeks in the searing heat. Many die of dehydration, starvation, or disease before they reach their destination, and those who survive are subjected to abuse and methods of slaughter that would be illegal here.
