ACTION – WRITTEN DECLARATION - 0049 / 2011
** CAMPAIGNER ACTION REQUIRED ** to be completed by first week of March 2012.
An 8 hour Written Declaration (WD), Ref 0049 / 2011 and calling for an 8 hour maximum journey limit for live animals in transport has now been created by the following MEP’s – Dan Jørgensen, Esther de Lange, Pavel Poc, Carl Schlyter and Andrea Zanoni.
This Written Declaration is IN ADDITION TO the 1 million + petition which has been recently signed and completed by Euro citizens.
***** Do not confuse it with this EU citizen petition – this is a separate issue.
This Written Declaration can only be signed by supportive Members of the European Parliament (MEP). It further supports the Euro citizen petition (! Million +) if the required numbers of (MEP) signatures are achieved.
The required number is at least 369.
And so we need to support this massive Euro citizen petition of over 1 million by collecting the signatures of 369 (minimum) MEP’s by the deadline date of 15th March 2012.
We currently have 119 MEP signatures collected throughout Europe but still have another minimum of 250 to collect.
To clarify, at least 369 MEP signatures of the WD need to be collected by early March if there is to be any success.
The number of the specific Written Declaration is: 0049 / 2011.
Its title is: Written Declaration on the establishment of a maximum 8-hour journey limit for animals transported in the European Union for the purpose of being slaughtered.
You can check which MEPs throughout Europe have / have not signed by clcking on the following link: http://www.8hours.eu/declaration
Very Important Note:
You can only ask your national and regional MEP’s to support this WD.
Please do NOT contact other MEP’s outside your area or in other EU nations asking for them to sign.
Once you have clicked on the link http://www.8hours.eu/declaration check the following in relation to your specific regional MEP’s:
A GREEN TICK (√) to the left of the individual (MEP) name means they HAVE signed the WD;
A RED BAR against their name means they still HAVE NOT signed the WD.
Hence these (red bar) MEPs are now the only ones which need to be further contacted.
Once clicked on the above link and using youur national flag ident, find your regional MEP’s; or use the link given below to select your region.
Then check against their name(s) – do they have a Green ‘Tick’ or a Red ‘Bar’ ?
If they have a Red bar still against their individual name, then they HAVE NOT yet signed the WD.
Therefore, please contact them immediately and ask them to support this
Written Declaration – 0049 / 2011.
We require as many Uk MEPs as possible to sign and support this
WD by 15th March.
Using the above procedure, you can specifically find out which of each of your REGIONAL MEP’s have or have not yet signed and, if not signed, ask them to add their signature to this WD - 0049 / 2011.
Take no further action against those who have already signed; apart from a line of thanks maybe ?
