AWP’s Key Policies for the 2019 General Election

  • Avert climate catastrophe, improve human health and save NHS funds by promoting healthy and sustainable plant-based diets.
  • Re-direct farming subsidies from animal agriculture and fisheries into plant-based agriculture
  • Increase penalties for those convicted of animal abuse up to a maximum custodial sentence of 10 years
  • End the badger cull and strengthen the fox hunting ban
  • Strengthen companion animal welfare with an end to breed specific legislation, the sale of animals online and in retail stores and the exotic pet trade
  • Phase out farming practices and systems with poor welfare consequences for animals
  • Phase out animal experimentation with binding targets for reduction combined with proper funding & real support for alternatives
  • Introduce independently monitored CCTV for all slaughterhouses
  • End live animal export and all slaughter without prior stunning
  • Oppose hard Brexit. Support a second or ‘people’s’ referendum on the final exit deal

AWP’s 2019 General Election Manifesto will be released shortly.

Please visit our Vision section to see previous manifestos.

We continue to fundraise at the link below so that we may produce enough election leaflets for every home in each of the constituencies being contested and, should we meet this goal, we aim to then produce additional posters and banners – to really help us get the message out.
