news release


The forthcoming General Election is a truly pivotal moment where the fate of almost a billion animals every year hangs in the balance. Ultimately, it is politicians that have the power of life and death over these animals.

Animals suffer just like we do, but they can’t vote, they can’t protest and they can’t lobby MPs. These vulnerable creatures are completely dependent on good, caring people to defend them from abuse. If you are concerned at all about animal cruelty, it is absolutely vital to speak up for animals at this Election.

Most people are opposed to animal cruelty, but successive Governments have ignored animal suffering in favour of powerful vested interests involved in factory farming and animal experiments. We need to show that votes are won and lost on animal issues if we are going to counterbalance these cruel industries and force the political system to take animal protection seriously.

VOTE4ANIMALS 2010 is the latest initiative in Uncaged’s groundbreaking Protecting Animals in Democracy (PAD) project, which we established prior to the 2005 General Election. Since then we have led the task of putting animal protection into politics by empowering citizens to lobby MPs on animal protection initiatives. This has also gathered vital data about MPs’ commitment to animal welfare and rights.

Now, our VOTE4ANIMALS 2010 project aims to translate public concern for animals into direct pressure for compassionate change at the heart of Government. The British people may have led the world in animal protection, but British Governments have led the way in resistance to change. The animals desperately need us to change this appalling situation.

What you need to do:

Please visit the fantastic www.vote4animals.org.uk website now to speak up for animals. You just need to enter your postcode and then you’ll have the chance to ask each of your candidates to complete a policy questionnaire on major animal protection issues such as hunting, factory farming and animal testing. You’ll also be able to discover how much support your MP has given to animal protection since they were elected in 2005.

This is vital so that future MPs realise the deep concern that people have for animal protection and convince them to give it the serious attention it deserves. It also puts them on the spot and forces them to give straight answers to simple questions!

Their replies will be published at www.vote4animals.org.uk. And then close to Election Day, our politics experts Dr Dan Lyons will provide recommendations for each constituency to help you cast your vote in way that gives animals real hope for a better future, safe from cruelty.
