Call/email your MP (& thank them if Labor)

All MPs need to hear from you urgently: if your MP is a member of the Labor party please thank them for this historic decision, and if they're from another party politely assure them that they're supported in making a similarly strong stand looking out for Aussie animals. MPs from other parties who support an end to live sheep exports include Sussan Ley, Sarah Henderson, Jason Wood and Jason Falinski of the Liberals, Independent MP Andrew Wilkie, Greens MP Adam Bandt and Centre Alliance MP Rebekha Sharkie. Please thank them too if they represent you!
