Keith Taylor, the Green MEP for Kent and the South East, will speak out against live exports at a public meeting in Broadstairs this Saturday, 26 November. Keith will detail his concerns and thank local campaigners for their work to highlight this cruel practice. Local MP, Laura Sandys, and staff from animal welfare organisations from the RSPCA and Compassion in World Farming will also address the meeting.

Keith recently visited Ramsgate to meet with campaigners who are demanding an end to live animal exports from Ramsgate port. Keith has raised his concerns about the welfare of animals being exported from Ramsgate with James Paice MP, the Minister of State for Agriculture and Food.

He has also written to European Commissioner Dalli urging him to ensure better enforcement of EU animal welfare standards and to consider the introduction of an 8 hour maximum journey limit for animal transportation, as a step towards ending all live exports.

The meeting will take place from 12:30-14:30 on Saturday 26 November at The Baptist Hall, Queens Road, Broadstairs, CT10 1NU, UK.
