Political Party for Animals

Switzerland establishes Animal Party Switzerland.

On Saturday, July 24, animals received their own political party. Animal advocates in Switzerland have established the TierPartei Schweiz, or the Animal Party Switzerland. The political party will act primarily in the interest of animals and has committed to a variety of animal-related causes, such as protection of animal rights, conservation of natural habitats, an end to animal experimentation, increasing animal-rights awareness, and more. Switzerland is a country that already boasts strict laws for protecting animals, such as ensuring that all social animals have contact with others of its own kind. The Animal Party Switzerland declares on its Facebook page: “Because animals need a voice,” and plans to partake in elections next year.
