Treatment of Human Beings and Cattle in Australia

Last week the Australian government banned export of live Cattle to Indonesia, because they accused our slaughter houses have been treating those animals brutally.

Yesterday, I read on The Jakarta Globe that three boys that were snatched by people smugglers from a poor Indonesian village have been held for months in an Australian jail together with hardened criminals.

The Australian Federal police had ignored the Immigration Department's assessments and extracts of birth certificates showing that the boys were under 18, contravening federal government policy to return children apprehended on asylum seeker boats.

Instead, the boys — aged 15 and 16 who were cooks and deck hands on an asylum-seeker boat — face five years’ jail in a high security adult jail under harsh mandatory sentencing laws.

I hope that the Australian government would treat human beings from other countries better than they treat their animals.

In spite of the Australian government's policies toward Indonesia, the the country and
its people are okay.

setidaknya mereka peduli. dibanding pemerintah kita, ama yang mereka pedulikan?

Multibrand said...

Iya pemerintah mereka lebih peduli kepada semua yang ada dinegaranya, termasuk binatangnya.

The way cattle are being slaughtered in ( some?) slaughterhouses in Indonesia is cruel. (And Australia's official response to it odd).The way these Indonesian guys were ( are?) treated in Australia guys also is cruel (And Indonesia's official response to it striking).

Anyhow,let's hope animal welfare in Indonesia and human rights of illegal immigrants in Australia, will make substantial progress.

ayo kita perbanyak ternak sapi biar kita bisa memnuhi kebutuhan sendiri dalam negeri

Multibrand said...

Yeah, let us hope that things would get better.

@Wisata Murah,
Hubungan antara tetangga dekat cenderung untuk diliputi oleh sentimen.

Demikianlah keadaannya.

Sebaiknya kita mengurangi ketergantungan akan daging sapi import.

Harry, frankly said that the three boy mistreatment by the Australian authorities has got nothing to do with cattle torturing in Indonesia. People make stupid and careless mistakes in the world, in Indonesia, Australia or anywhere else. But I believe both cases do not represent fairly the whole "ball games". There are only a fraction of abattoirs in Indonesia that treat the cattle brutally while I believe too the number of good and careful Australian authorities still outnumber the poor and reckless ones.

We, both sides, have to look into ourselves. The Australian authorities must perform more thoroughgoing rechecks before they put someone in jail to rest assured that a stupid mistake like this will not happen again in the future. On the other hand, we have to keep an eye out for ignorant butchers who do not realise that animal torturing is forbidden in halal slaughtering. Fair and square.

Nice quote on last words, very2 agree with that.

Aulawi Ahmad said...

Absolutely I agree with u sir, u know the foreign country (Australia) is always not fair with Indonesia hmmmm

Jolly Princess said...

Oh, this is a sad news. I hope these children will finally find the justice that belongs to them.

Multibrand said...

@Bear Wife,
Yes they are too young to face such hard times.

I agree that both cases are not related, they only occurred at almost the same time.

I also agree that both sides should have to look into themselves.
The Australian government must
treat children as they ought to be. And our government should make sure that abattoirs properly cut the cattle therefore according to the conditions for halal cutting.

@Blogilicious Kito Palembang,
I am glad that you like the words.

@Aulawi Ahmad,
Yeah, you can say that.

Very sad indeed.

sedangkan pemerintah kita ga jelas peduli ama siapa..

triesti said...

can we boycott Australian imports?

Multibrand said...

Kita harus mendorong pemerintah kita untuk memperbaiki keadaan termasuk cara pemotongan khewan.

Why not? but I don't think that our government or the Australian govt would want that to happen.
