Let's Make History for Animals - the Animal Welfare Party EU Election Campaign

The Animal Welfare Party is a political party for people, animals and the environment. They're determined to make history by returning a dedicated representative for animals to the EU Parliament for the first time ever in May 2014. Winning political representation for animals in the EU elections would be a major step in the fight against speciesism and one that the AWP are determined to see happen. But winning won't be easy. If you share their vision and would like to see them succeed, please visit their website today: Raising enough funds to spread the word about the AWP as far and wide as possible is going to be crucial to their success. Can you donate £1 / $1 or more today to help them get the message about their campaign out there? To donate, please visit:

Thanks so much for your support in re-writing history for animals.

de haas in der marathon ('the pacer in the marathon')

In October 2002 - for the first time in history - a political party is founded which does not base its policy on human-centric thinking. The Party for the Animals represents a new political movement that values animal welfare and the environment. ‘The foundation of The Party for the Animals was received with scepticism within traditional politics. However, the Party for the Animals quickly appeared to function as 'a pacer in the marathon', recalls Marianne Thieme - co-founder and party leader.

The Pacer of the Marathon provides an insight into the public reception of this pioneering political movement, within science, politics and media.

This short video by EVOLVE! outlines the rationale behind following a vegan lifestyle – justice for animals, justice for global food production, better health, putting a stop to violence and environmental destruction, and not to mention great cruelty-free food and fashion amongst other incentives.

Plant-based nutrition vs Animal-based nutrition

Many people think that eating solely plant-based foods is not healthy and are still convinced that meat, dairy, fish and eggs are a necessary part of our diet. But as this video shows, by eating a varied diet containing plenty of fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds and whole grains, it is easy to get all the nutrients we require.. with the added bonus that plant-based foods contain no saturated animal fat, no cholesterol and none of the acidifying effects of animal derived foods.

Best Before: The london revolution

A short documentary about rising food prices and an impending food crisis in the UK. In London, obesity and food poverty rates are skyrocketing, and healthy food has become the privilege of the wealthy. But London is also the city where community organisations are shaping alternatives. From city farms to roof gardens, farmers' markets to food cooperatives, Londoners are taking matters into their own hands. Best Before follows the people taking back control of food production in the UK and who are providing an alternative for a more sustainable, ecological and socially just food system.

What We can Do to End World Hunger

The growing consumption of meat, poultry and dairy products has created an explosion in livestock populations worldwide. As this video explains, meat-eating societies are the main cause of world hunger because they feed a disproportionate percentage of the world's crops to the 60 billion land animals annually killed by the meat, dairy and egg industries worldwide, and tens of billions of marine animals... instead of the 7 billion people on the planet.
