More than 130,000 people signed our petition calling for the Karantina slaughterhouse in Lebanon abattoir to be shut down. Towards the end of 2014 we received news that the slaughterhouse has been closed for refurbishment.

Thank you to every single person who took action to close Karantina. The pressure you applied means that, for the first time, action is being taken by the Lebanese Government.

We will continue to work closely with officials in Lebanon to make sure real change for animals is possible.
