After watching the ABC’s Four Corners program last night I cannot sit back and do nothing and I hope you too will sign this petition to Ban live Export of Australian Cattle to Indonesia. To watch those poor cattle treated like that deeply saddens me and I urge you to PLEASE try and watch the segment and then you will see exactly why I am so passionate about this..
The Following is MY opinion and I encourage you all to watch the video or the entire segment on iView and make up your own mind.
If you feel by the end of watching the story that you would like to help… sign any petition you can on this matter, as they will be forwarded to the government or you can write directly to your local member of Parliment!.
I admit that I myself, eat meat- although today I have not nor have any desire to anytime soon!.I am against the practices shown on the program and believe that this treatment of the cattle and these methods should be illegal..
I personally think we should enforce a ban of the cattle, until the Indonesia changes their practices and I would hope that some kind of regulated authority is doing regular checks of slaughterhouses.
I acknowledge that our farmers who struggle enough will be damaged by this ban but I think we need to send a strong message to Indonesia, and any other country who practice this cruelty.
When I was a teenager, I was very secretly doing fashion sketches and flicking through Vogue .. afraid someone would detect my love for high end fashion and illustrating them. I protected my sketches fiercely and never wanted anyone to deter me . It was bad enough I was an out and proud flamboyant…. ……………………………………….Kylie fan!!
I had heard that there was a Sydney Fashion Designer called Alex Perry, and he was “kinda expensive” .. rightfully so I recall thinking at the time.
From the very start I was fascinated by his creations and always admired that he was braver than I would ever be and not only sketching and designing BUT creating!!!!!!……
I still to this day- attribute Alex to rescuing Australia from bringing fashion from the 80’s too far into into the 90’s..Whilst many of peers were clinging to the 80s, Alex in the first part of the 90’s, went a little further back and bought old Hollywood to Sydney!.
"The Perry Pinch" as I call it -references his commitment to creating the perfect silhouette. Alex takes a beautiful woman to another level by taking her in at the waist with his signature corset, still a trademark piece in almost all of his collections and pieces today in 2011.
After meeting my fashion idol, I walked away from that meeting imaging how i would have felt had someone told me when I was 17 ,that one day I would meet Alex Perry and he would know my name!.
You know what?! Alex Perry Is not actually good for my health…as I am left tight chested, drowning in endorphins and Breathless after watching the models walk in his gowns..
