Berlin, 7 February 2020 – 100 outsized fierce chickens will besiege Subway’s European headquarters at Prinsengracht 13 in Amsterdam on Tuesday, 11 February 2020, from 10 a.m. to 12 midday. With this “revolt of the chickens”, animal rights activists are protesting in opposition to the truth that the sandwich firm sells meat from chickens which are saved underneath merciless circumstances. They may hand over nearly 130,000 signatures for a petition in opposition to the corporate.
Within the afternoon, chickens and animal welfare activists will go to the Subway restaurant at Rokin/Spaarpotsteeg. The motion in Amsterdam can be accompanied by a Twitterstorm underneath the hashtag #ChickensAgainstSubway. The protests are a part of a Europe-wide marketing campaign led by the Albert Schweitzer Basis and can be adopted by additional actions in opposition to Subway in main cities and on-line.
20 animal welfare organizations will put Subway by way of the wringerTogether with 19 additional organizations from 14 international locations, the Albert Schweitzer Basis is looking on Subway to enhance its animal welfare requirements for so-called broiler chickens. For 2 years they’ve been attempting to persuade the corporate to affix the European Rooster Dedication. Nevertheless, the world’s largest franchisor with its greater than 42,000 eating places is stubbornly refusing to take action – even though Subway joined an identical dedication within the USA and Canada as early as 2017.
European Rooster Dedication (ECC)The ECC goals to determine a better minimal commonplace within the husbandry of chickens raised for meat. 260+ corporations, together with KFC, Pizza Hut and Nestlé, have already pledged to satisfy the necessities.
