As a global economic power, the EU has the potential to promote animal rights and environmental protection. Instead of focusing on increasing economic growth and international trade, the core of European policy needs to be focused around humane growth models and internal cooperation to solve our current societal problems.
The Animal Justice Party of Finland is already working with other animal parties. Members of the European Parliament are organized by political groups, not by nationality. The Animal Right Party MEP’s Anja Hazekamp (Party for the Animals, Netherland) and Stefan Eck (Independent, Germany) are both part of the European United Left-Nordic Green Left group.
In these elections, you can vote for an Animal Justice Party candidate, regardless of where you live! 🇪🇺🐾
