Party for the Animals...

Postby xsfat » Mon Jun 27, 2011 3:34 am - An actual political party in Netherlands
World's first animal rights political party, successfully elected to parliament in Nov 2006 with 2 of the 150 seats in the Dutch House of Representatives.
They were re-elected for a second term in June 2010. They also hold 1 of the 75 seats in the Dutch Senate.
Literally a voice for the voiceless. I can't imagine NZ ever being this progressive... Party leader is Marianne Thieme *swoon*

The green party of Aotearoa are the only party in NZ to have comprehensive animal welfare/ rights policy and Sue Kedgley has been a consistent voice in parliament for animals in Aotearoa .
