Looking at all the data, evidence, analysis gathered in this knowledge base we have these conclusions. We’ve provided links within it to point you to some of the best examples for the case we make.
The UK Government is failing to protect UK public
Based on our findings we believe the Government is failing to protect human health, the planet and the welfare of sentient animals.
The Government’s approach is reactive as it ignores science, international specialists, even its own advisors and the precautionary principle.
Existing pathways and plans are inadequate in terms of recognising and addressing root causes.
The issues linked to factory farming are clear, the plans to deal with them are not.
It is unconscionable to continue with practices that are provably promoting a pandemic whilst people are dying from the current one?
We demand action from the UK government that prevents future pandemics, the climate crisis, environmental damage, pollution and antibiotic resistance as once thresholds are past - cures will be impossible.
For the sake of animals, people and the planet urgent and decisive action is required
Pandemics Antibiotic resistance Climate Crisis Pollution Environmental damage
Monitor Vaccinate Control Set targets Rely on untested technology
Root Cause Proactive solution
SCRAP factory farming
The UK Government must urgently phase out animal factory farming by 2025 and support farmers in their transition to a sustainable food system that protects animals, people, and the planet
With an immediate cessation of planning applications for animal factory farms, to ensure no new factory farms, or extensions including facilities located within three miles of an existing factory farm and under common ownership or control) to existing ones, are built.
The cessation of subsidies/ bailouts for animal factory farms
Significant governmental support for farmers to transition to sustainable farming practices that protect animals, people, and the planet
Ensuring that any reduction in UK production is not replaced with imported farmed animals or animal products
