European Citizens' Initiative: 'End the cage age'

At a Glance 02-06-2021

Throughout the EU, millions of animals are reared in cages, in conditions that seriously harm their welfare. A European Citizens' Initiative, 'End the Cage Age', calls on the European Commission to end the practice of keeping animals in cages and to propose legislation to prohibit their use. In response to this initiative, the European Parliament is expected to hold a debate on the subject and vote a resolution during its June I plenary session.
