Photographs reveal that South Africa’s trade in live animals to slaughter in foreign countries reflects a flagrant disregard for the United Nations’ Right of the Child to be protected from violence inflicted on animals.

Other countries are already aligning with GC26. For example:

May 2024:

Spain scraps its annual 30 000 euro government bull-fighting award in compliance with a new understanding of animal welfare.

May 2024:

Italy approves a law against the exposure of minors to violence against animals and makes this offence part of ‘serious forms of prejudice’ in its Anti-bullying legislation.

In compliance with the strict obligations

imposed on member states by GC26, 

The Humane Education Trust calls on the

South African government to bring an end

to long-distance transport of live animals to slaughter in favour of chilled and frozen meat.
