animals are not pawns chess board with animal pieces

UK trade negotiations are underway with countries around the world. These deals will bind the fate of billions of farm animals. Will these animals be Brexit winners or sacrificial pawns in an economic game?

Sacrificing farm animal welfare is too high a price for any ‘deal’. A gift from you will help fight factory farming in the UK, at the country’s borders, and beyond.

DONATE TODAY

Animals are not pawns. Please make a gift to fight factory farming in the UK, at the country’s borders and beyond.

FARM ANIMALS DESERVE RESPECT

Following the UK’s departure from the EU, the country’s trading relationships with the world are set to be transformed. The Government has indicated that it will not water down UK animal welfare standards during this process – but the pressures of the negotiations will be immense, on top of the challenges presented by Covid-19.

We must ensure that farm animals really do receive the respect they deserve in every new deal; that their wellbeing isn’t traded away for economic advantage. Through direct discussions and public pressure, we must convince Ministers to use their power to lead the UK – and the world – away from factory farming.

Please make a donation today to speak up for farm animals and hold the UK’s leaders to their promises.

hens and pig in caged farm system

Barren cages for hens and sow stalls for pigs are banned in the UK, but still widely used in many parts of the world.

A BAD DEAL FOR EVERYONE

Take a minute to think about what a bad deal for farm animals could mean for society. UK shoppers could be widely offered:

  1. Hormone-treated beef, imported from outside Europe.
  2. Chlorinated or acid-washed chicken (In the US, chickens are often washed in chlorine or lactic acid to eliminate bacteria that have infected the birds during rearing and slaughter. These washes can be used to make up for poor conditions in farms and abattoirs.)
  3. Eggs from hens kept in barren cages (these barbaric cages have been banned in the EU and UK since 2012.)
  4. Pork produced by keeping mother pigs in cages for their entire adult lives.
  5. Food from clones and genetically engineered animals.

What is more, increasingly inhumane imports could undermine higher welfare farmers in the UK, tempting them to compromise the wellbeing of their animals in order to compete. The Government may even face demands to prop up UK agriculture by diluting hard-won animal welfare legislation.

Please make a donation to fight inhumane, intensive farming and stop more cruelty making its way into our supermarkets.

Do we want trade deals that could encourage the spread of vast, cruel, barren 'feedlots'?

THE VOICE FOR FARM ANIMALS

The task ahead is not straightforward – and we are, day by day, adapting our campaigns to address the impacts of the new coronavirus. But, throughout every stage of every trade deal, together, we will be the voice for farm animals:

  • Compassion’s lobbying team will get your message directly to the UK Parliament. Using the extensive contacts and long-standing respect they’ve built up thanks to people like you, they’ll set out the risks and opportunities of new trading relationships for farm animals. On the phone, via in-boxes, pigeonholes, and – wherever possible – face-to-face, they will offer clear, specific policy advice, and confront MPs and Ministers with the true implications of lower welfare imports – for animals and for our society.
  • We will encourage compassionate citizens to bring the strength of their convictions to bear at this pivotal moment. We will provide them with the support and tools they need to contact leaders and decision-makers – by email, social media or, again where possible, good-old-fashioned post. And we will help them to spread the word to friends and family, growing the voice for farm animals to increase pressure on our politicians.
  • We will keep the wider public informed about the truth behind unhealthy, inhumane imports – from cruel genetic game-playing, to the terrible abuse of animals in poorly-regulated, intensive farms. By presenting people with the hard facts, we will galvanise the actions and influence of voters behind the message that a bad deal for animals is a bad deal for us all.

We would be so grateful if you could join us and speak out against factory farming with a gift today.

THE KEY PLAYERS

There are four key players in the UK’s post-Brexit trade negotiations and the future of farm animals. With your support, Compassion in World Farming must ensure they safeguard animal welfare for generations to come:

George Eustice, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Responsible for post-Brexit policies on agriculture, food and farm animal welfare.
Liz Truss, Secretary of State for International Trade: Leading the UK’s trade negotiations, with a brief to secure new free trade deals.
Boris Johnson, Prime Minister: Will influence all trade deals; could veto his Ministers’ plans.
Michael Gove, Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office: Overseeing government preparations for Brexit; most senior minister in the Cabinet Office after the PM.

A BETTER FUTURE

With your help, instead of causing animal suffering, the current trade negotiations could ensure the UK truly leads the way in farm animal welfare.

The country could stand its ground, speak up for principles of respect and care for animals, and refuse to import cruel products that are outlawed on UK farms. In turn, this will reduce the global market for factory farmed products and could help convince other nations to give animals the compassion they deserve.

Billions of animals around the world are depending upon the UK’s leaders to stick to their word and defend high animal welfare standards. Your donation today could help fight factory farming and put respect for animals right at the heart of the trade negotiations.

Thank you.
