Animal Welfare Party is 1 of 7 European animal protection parties standing in this week's EU Parliament elections. In the UK voting takes place on Thursday 22nd May and polls are open 7am to 10pm.
Animal Welfare Party is standing in the London electoral region and urges animal advocates to vote Animal Welfare Party.
The aim of each of the 7 parties standing in the EU elections is to return dedicated representatives for animals to the EU Parliament for the first time ever.
The name given informally to our group is ‘The Euro Animal 7′ and we represent voters in the UK, Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Sweden and Cyprus.
To many of our supporters, this is a moment in history as significant as any in the history of human rights or women’s rights. Winning political representation for animals in the EU Parliament would be a major step in the battle against speciesism and for greater rights for all animals.
A victory for any one of the Euro Animal 7 would send a huge signal to the rest of the world that man’s relationship with animals and the environment is changing, that we are re-defining what it means to be human, extending the circle of compassion to include the non-human and less powerful.
