Stop Live Exports campaign Manager Katrina Love said that 250-300 people attended the rally against the exporter Emanuel Exports which was the company involved in an August 2017 incident that was brought to the attention of agriculture minister  David Littleproud. That ship was the Awassi Express and a whistleblower approached Animals Australia with video footage showing sheep dying due to heat stress en route to the Middle East. The ship left Fremantle on 1 August carrying 63,804 sheep bound for Qatar, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates. It was subject to the standard investigation by the federal environment department because the number of sheep killed by heat stress pushed the mortality rate to 3.76%. The Al Messilah has incurred similar investigations previously.

While the shipment detailed in this incident was on route last year, the Perth-based exporters were warned of possible prosecution over a shipment in July 2016 on which 3,027 of the 69,322 sheep onboard died, leaving a mortality rate of 4.36%.
