EU Commission: the pencil-pushers of Brussels

EU report reveals abuses in animal exports by ship.

In view of a current report by the EU Commission on the implementation of animal transports by ship, the German Animal Welfare Association – together with the European umbrella organization Eurogroup for Animals – is once again calling for an end to live animal transport to countries outside Europe.

The report of the Directorate General for Health and Food Safety (DG Sante) of the EU Commission documents various grievances in transport: from loading in trucks and in the port to shipping and arrival in the destination country.

“The documented massive grievances show once again that animal welfare requirements cannot be met during animal transport to countries outside Europe.
As a consequence, this must mean an immediate exit from these transports.

We call on the EU Commission: End these inhuman conditions! It is about the well-being of fellow creatures, not goods or goods, ”said Thomas Schröder, President of the German Animal Welfare Association.

My comment: In 2017, the international law firm Conte & Giacomini, which specializes in EU law, on behalf of Animal Welfare Fondation (AWF) filed a comprehensive complaint about shipments with the EU Commission and asked it to initiate infringement proceedings against various member states. The proceedings are still ongoing.

In our language it says: nothing

The EU Commission then carried out inspection visits to the EU ports for the first time (!!!) in 2018 and 2019 and confirmed many of the problems mentioned above.

All violations of the law documented by the EU Commission, remained without consequences – the miserable situation on animal transports remains unchanged.

Compassion in World Farming wrote per Twitter on January 26th 2020 about the tragedy in Midia...

“What is lacking is political will at European commission and member state level to reconfigure the EU livestock sector to avoid long journeys.”

No! there is no lack of political will!

We are governed by kleptocratic despots who work profitably and have made it possible for years that the meat mafia determines how animal transport and factory farming have to work.

My best regards to all, Venus
