Animal suffragettes march to Parliament

Posted on the 23rd April 2015

Today, Animal Aid campaigners are marching to parliament – alongside colleagues from Lush, the League Against Cruel Sports and Save Me – to highlight the importance of considering animal protection measures when voting on May 7th. The campaigners are dressed as suffragettes and are wearing ‘Votes for Animals’ rosettes and animal masks.

‘Votes for Animals’ echoes the powerful and effective votes for women campaign from the early 20th century. Over the next two weeks, the shop windows of every Lush store around the country will be featuring striking imagery to remind people to vote with animals in mind on May 7th. Lush staff will be engaging customers on animal welfare issues and directing them to their partner organisations to find out more.

The initiative is spearheaded by Lush and backed by celebrities Brian May, Peter Egan and Bill Oddie.

Says Head of Campaigns at Animal Aid, Kate Fowler

‘Not all politicians are the same, and party policies on animal welfare are particularly diverse. To animals in the wild, on farms, in laboratories and in our homes, it makes a very real difference which party comes to power. We are urging animal-lovers to find out more, and vote for animals on May 7th.’
