The Victorian Farmers Federation (VFF) has instructed its lawyers to take 
action against any new attempt by animal liberationists to disrupt the live 
export trade from the Port of Portland in the south-west of the State.
About 40 protesters are in Portland today to try to block the arrival of a 
live export ship, although police say the ship is not expected to dock today.
Simon Ramsay, from the VFF's livestock group, says the industry is ready to 
take immediate legal action against any attempt to stop exports from Portland.
'We were made aware on the weekend that there most likely would be some 
protest action this week from Animal Liberation Victoria and we spent the weekend 
making sure we have a range of contingencies in place to make sure that those 
people don't impede the loading of any live export vessel," he said.

"True human goodness, in all its purity and freedom, can come to fore only 
when its recipient has no power. Mankind's true moral test, its fundamental test 
(which lies deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those 
who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect mankind has suffered a 
fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it."
