AWP announces its Party List for London

AWP announces its Party List for London
Ahead of the EU Elections on May 22nd, AWP has announced a full party list of eight candidates for the London Region.


Alongside lead candidate and Party Leader, Vanessa Hudson, are designer and animal welfare campaigner Meg Mathews; Dr. Andrew Knight, a Fellow of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics and a European Veterinary Specialist in Animal Welfare Science, Ethics and Law; and Alex Bourke, author of the ‘Vegetarian Guides’ series.


Of her decision to stand as a candidate Meg Matthews says: “I’d like to see the Animal Welfare Party and their European counterparts succeed at the EU elections in May because this would really signal to the rest of the world that the way we treat animals has to and is changing for the better.”


Of his decision to stand as a candidate, Andrew Knight says: “Just because animals can’t vote, doesn’t mean they don’t count! Animals are the most abused and neglected members of our society, and modern political parties must become more serious and professional about protecting them. I’m proud to help the Animal Welfare Party introduce well-reasoned animal concerns to politics, and policy-making.”


AWP estimates it needs around 140,000 votes, which amounts to less than a third of the number of vegetarian members of the electorate in the London Region, to win a seat and make history for animals on 22nd May.
