Statement to voters
AWP is part of an international network of political parties working to create a fairer
society in which the needs of people, animals and the environment are balanced.
Take this opportunity to demonstrate that the UK can be a world leader in animal welfare and environmental protection.
An International Movement for Animal Welfare
Animal Welfare Party is modelled on the highly successful Dutch ‘Party for the Animals’ (PvdD) who have over 50 elected representatives including five MPs, two senators and one MEP. We’re now part of a world-wide movement of over 18 political parties for animals that takes in Australia, Asia, Europe, Canada and the US. Along with the Netherlands, our sister parties in Germany, Portugal and Australia have already been successful in returning dedicated representatives for animals to their decision-making bodies and we know that the same is possible for the UK. Will you help us?
AWP’s Key Policies for the 2017 General Election
-Increase penalties for those convicted of animal abuse.
-End the badger cull and oppose any repeal of the fox hunting ban.
-Strengthen companion animal welfare with an end to breed specific legislation, the sale of animals online and in retail stores and the exotic pet trade.

-Improve human health, save NHS funds, protect the environment and global food security by promoting healthy plant-based diets.
-Phase out animal experimentation with binding targets for reduction combined with proper funding & real support for alternatives.
