Sign the petition to the European Commission
Every year, millions of farm animals are exported live from the European Union, and millions more are transported long distances within the EU.
These animals endure journeys of hundreds, or even thousands, of miles, only to be slaughtered on arrival or fattened in often inhumane conditions.
Please, sign the petition to the European Commission today – demand an end to live exports.
Right now, we have a crucial chance to influence EU law on the transport of animals. A ‘fitness check’ of the Transport Regulation (1/2005) is underway, and the Commission has committed to revising this legislation.
We must seize this opportunity. We must show the Commission the full force of public opinion – both within and beyond the EU – against this cruel trade.
Please call for a ban on live exports and long distance transport, and urge the EU to take further steps to protect farm animals.
