Care2 states that those of us in the
are paying £8 each month towards subsidies for European factory farms. Altogether the citizens of UK Europe are paying over 45 billion pounds (over 55 billion euros) per year into the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). With this money CAP does very little to protect our farm animals. Now for the first time in 8 years these subsidies are up for review and it is our chance to give animals a voice and ensure that animal welfare takes precedent in the policy across Europe.
