England: Follow Up Actions For EU Animals Stranded At The Turkish Border. Please Act NOW!

England  EU AW LOGO

Further update – 25/2/16.

We have now also submitted copies of the video to all

Scottish and Welsh MEP’s, as well as to all the English MEP’s.

We are flagging all messages sent so that we can check who is / is not reading our mail.

We really hope that other EU citizens / visitors to this site are also sending copies of the video link to their own MEP(s).

We need pressure to be put on from all areas of the EU, not just the UK and Netherlands.

23/2/16 – Today (so far) we have been doing a lot of follow up work with regard the new video showing the situation for EU animals going into Turkey (a non EU nation) for slaughter. View our post and link to the video via the following.

What have we done today:

Provided copies of the video and written links on the situation to:

– All South East England Members of the European Parliament (MEP’s)

– Supplied a copy of the video to the All Party Animal Welfare Group – http://www.apgaw.org/   – About:

The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Animal Welfare (APGAW) is an all-party group made up of MPs, Peers and associate animal welfare organisations or groups with a specific interest in this area. The aim of the Group is to promote and further the cause of animal welfare by all means available to the Parliaments at Westminster and in Europe. APGAW seeks to influence the development and introduction of effective wide-ranging legislation to improve welfare and also acts as a discussion forum of politicians and welfare experts to looks at areas of concern.

All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) have no formal place in the legislature unlike Select Committees, but are an effective way of bringing together parliamentarians and interested parties to start raising the profile on issues. APGAW chooses topics which are likely to be high profile to discuss and can then put forward ideas for improvements to the current Government. Members of the public are not able to attend APGAW meetings unless specifically invited by the Chairman but they can ask their MP to attend if they are concerned about an area of animal welfare. – http://www.apgaw.org/farm-animals

– Supplied a copy of the video to the Conservative Animal Welfare Group – http://www.conservativehome.com/platform/2006/09/roger_baker_pro.html

– Liaised with our friends at ‘Eyes on Animals’ http://www.eyesonanimals.com/ in the Netherlands to inform them of what we are doing to promote the video on the UK side of the North Sea.

That is this morning – this afternoon we will be supplying yet further links of the video to other UK MEP’s located around the country. Although we are in the South East of England and have already been in contact with all out MEP’s about this issue, it will do no harm to send out further copies (and express our views !) elsewhere across the country – especially as we have an In / Out EU referendum in June – we need to let the MEP’s know that we are not happy and that they need to do something or face the consequences in June. MEP’s really should only deal with concerns from their own regional constituents – hence why we have done the SE of England, where we live.

Thus we hope that may EU citizens located in many EU nations will now send a copy of the new video, and a request for action to stop the trade, to their own national / regional MEP’s.

Here are 2 links to help anyone find their own MEP’s, regardless of where they are in the EU:

We now have clear video evidence of the situation at the EU / Turkey border for EU animals; it is more than disgusting and it needs to be stopped NOW. We hope that the Netherlands will speed up EU wide action on this whilst they hold the EU presidency: https://serbiananimalsvoice.com/2016/01/26/eu-sav-vary-much-welcomes-the-proposals-of-the-current-netherlands-presidency-of-the-eu-regarding-animal-welfare-journey-times-down-to-8-hours-max-lets-hope-so/

Thanks – SAV.
