Letters and emails are crucial, but one of the most direct ways you can help end the cruelty of live export is just to pick up the phone. It only takes a couple of minutes and is as easy as leaving a message with the electoral officer who answers the call.
The trick is to keep it simple. Here are a few key messages you might like to include:"I would like to register my opposition to live export." "I will not vote for a party that supports live export." "I would like my MP to represent my views on live export, and act to bring an end to the trade." "Animal welfare is a very important issue to me, and it will influence my vote."
It's also a great idea to write down what you would like to say before calling.
To leave your full name and details, and ask that your call is registered. You might also ask to be sent an email confirming this.
And that's it! Just a few minutes to make a real difference for animals. Why not make the call now? You can find your MP's phone number below.
