End of the Cage campaign.

Animal protection in Europe. | Posted on 2024-04-02 18:05

Documents have been filed with the Court of Justice of the European Union in Luxembourg to demonstrate that the European Commission has failed to keep its promise to introduce legislation to help animals suffering in cages.

The End the Cage Age campaign made history by being the first European Citizens' Initiative (ECI) to succeed in obtaining real commitment from the Commission. PETA worked with Compassion in World Farming and a coalition of 170 animal rights, animal welfare and environmental organizations in Europe to collect nearly 1.4 million signatures in support of the ban of the use of cages in animal agriculture. The Commission clearly committed to presenting legislative proposals to ban cage farming in the EU before the end of 2023, but it has failed to deliver on its promise.

The ICE End the Cage Age Citizens Committee, funded by Compassion in World Farming , is sadly forced to try to make history once again by being the first to call the Commission to account on its inaction in the context of an ECI. If the legal action is successful, the court will force the Commission to publish its proposals within a clear and reasonable time frame and to allow access to its file on the initiative.

Compassion in World Farming

More than 300 million pigs, chickens, rabbits, ducks, quails and geese suffer in cages across the European Union, all prey to cruelty and misery. Sows are forced to nurse their piglets in a cage so small they can't even turn around, rabbits and quails are locked up for life in empty cages, and ducks and geese are confined and force-fed to produce foie gras.

The best way to prevent animals from suffering in cages is to go vegan. Rejecting the daily cruelty that plagues the farms and slaughterhouses of France and Europe is as simple as making a few simple and delicious changes when you sit down to eat. Order PETA’s free “Aspiring Vegan’s Guide” for tips, recipes and advice.

People in favor of the #EndTheCageAge campaign can also show their support by sharing news of the legal action on social media and mentioning European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen (@vonderleyen).
