Stop animal cruelty - save lives

To agriculture and health ministers:

As citizens concerned about animal welfare and the public health threat of superbugs, we call on you to agree strong laws that ban the preventative use of antibiotics in livestock farming, and implement robust enforcement mechanisms aimed at vets, feed companies and farmers. Your leadership will reduce animal suffering, and save human lives.

Cruel factory farms are pumping healthy animals full of antibiotics to produce meat faster and cheaper. This insane cruelty is also creating drug-resistant superbugs that can kill us!

Several European countries have drastically cut farm use of antibiotics, but the UK is lagging behind. Now EU ministers are negotiating laws to force action across the continent.

Reducing cruelty to animals while saving human lives is such a no-brainer that even McDonald’s said its US stores won't stock chicken reared with antibiotics that humans use. But the farm and pharma lobbyists are out in full force to stop the new EU laws.

Many ministers have yet to make up their minds. Let’s help them make the right choice, building a million-strong call to outlaw the cruel and deadly abuse of antibiotics in factory farms, then delivering it to each one. Add your name now.
