Animal rights movement in European Parliament likely to be tripled

BRUSSELS, 4 April 2019 – International movement Animal Politics EU, which consists of the Party for the Animals in the Netherlands and its ten European sister parties, will likely gain 5 to 7 seats in the forthcoming European Parliament elections, according to opinion polls in several European countries. This means the animal rights movement in the European Parliament could triple in size. At the moment, Anja Hazekamp (the Netherlands) and Stefan Eck (Germany) are the only MEPs who have been elected to the European Parliament from parties for animals.

For the first time in history, as many as 11 parties for animals from across Europe are preparing to participate in the European Parliament elections. These parties come from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Finland, Sweden, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Cyprus, and possibly the United Kingdom. Today they will present their collective manifesto called “Animal Politics EU: May we have your votes, please?” in a press conference at the European Parliament.

“In more and more countries, animals are given a voice in politics, which reflects the growing resistance to the way animals are treated. Our growing international movement is consistent in protecting human as well as animal interests,” says Anja Hazekamp.

In 2014, the Dutch Party for the Animals and German party Mensch, Umwelt, Tierschutz were the first parties for animals ever to gain a seat in the European Parliament.

Att tjäna pengar kommer först inom hela EU. Viktiga frågor, såsom djurens rättigheter, mänskliga rättigheter och vår miljö, kommer alltid sist.

I maj kan vi ändra detta.
Tillsammans.
