Stop Vivisection: European Citizens' Initiative public hearing

A public hearing on the Stop Vivisection European Citizens' Initiative (ECI) will be hosted by the European Parliament in order to provide a platform for debate for Members, the general public, the ECI's supporters and experts in the field. The ECI aims to repeal the Directive on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes and asks the European Commission to present a new proposal that does away with animal experimentation.
The hearing is organised by the AGRI committee in association with the ENVI, ITRE and PETI committees. It will be held in Brussels on 11.05.15 from 15h00 to 18h30, in room JAN 4Q2.
