Compassion in World Farming has joined forces with other leading animal groups to maximise the pressure on MPs and MEPs across the parties in the UK and the EU. The coalition, Vote Cruelty Free, is now working together to ensure the political process reflects public concern for animal protection.
The coalition members are the BUAV, International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), League against Cruel Sports, Respect for Animals and Compassion in World Farming. Vote Cruelty Free covers a broad range of animal welfare issues including wild and marine animals, animal experimentation, cruel sports, the fur trade and, naturally, farming.
Vote Cruelty Free believes bringing the animal protection movement together and working directly with candidates and elected officials is an effective way to achieve positive change for animals in the political arena.
The coalition will be present at the party conferences and various fringe events in the UK and be engaging with MEP's throughout Europe.
