The national authorities have confirmed to us that we have collected more than 1 million valid signatures for the European Citizens’ Initiative STOP VIVISECTION!

This means that STOP VIVISECTION will continue the institutional process and will be the first Citizens’ Initiative discussed and analyzed by the next European Parliament and European Commission. In September 2014 the official hearing of our representatives André Menache and Gianni Tamino will be held in Bruxelles, at the European Parliament. In October 2014 we will have the official reply of the European Commission that will explain in which way it will act to comply with our requests.

 

STOP VIVISECTION!

STOP VIVISECTION le oferă cetățenilor europeni posibilitatea de a spune NU şi de a-şi exprima dezacordul față de experimentele pe animale, spre a solicita Uniunii Europene o alternativă viabilă şi în acord cu epoca actuală, respectând drepturile omului şi pe cele ale animalelor.

Grație Inițiativei cetățeneşti europene, europenii pot strânge milionul de semnături necesar participării la elaborarea măsurilor politice din UE. 

Cerem Comisiei Europene să abroge directiva 2010/63/EU privind protecţia animalelor folosite în scopuri ştiinţifice şi să prezinte o nouă propunere care elimină experimentele pe animale şi în schimb face obligatorie, atât în cercetarea biomedicală cât şi în cea toxicologică, utilizarea datelor direct relvante pentru specia umană.

Press release STOP VIVISECTION 29.12.2013

After over a month of intense work, on the 23rd  of December 2013, the signatures collected in support of STOP VIVISECTION were submitted to the competent authorities of the European Union’s 28 Member States. The final number of statements supporting the initiative was 1.326.000, the extraordinary result of the commitment and perseverance of the thousands of volunteers of national committees and of hundreds of associations and committees all over Europe that worked hard to achieve this amazing objective.
Twelve Countries achieved their national targets with a very modest budget of approximately 25.000 euros, collected through the donations of supporters and NGOs.
National Authorities will now proceed to certify the validity of the signatures by the end of March 2014 and subsequently disclose the final result achieved by STOP VIVISECTION, although the margin of 300,000 extra signatures that top the required one million, reduces the possibility of bad surprises.
Once the STOP VIVISECTION initiative is approved, the European Commission will convene a hearing with our Scientific Committee, after which it will have to specify the actions it plans to take to enforce the will expressed by European citizens. We therefore call on every single Association, Committee and Citizen to continue disseminating, sensitising and exerting pressure to give strength to the growing number of supporters that have joined the ranks of the STOP VIVISECTION initiative, save for rare and incomprehensible exceptions.
We need to make it clear to the European Commission that it can move in one direction only, with the aim of guiding Europe through an “epochal change” in biomedical research and in the assessment of toxic substances.
Toxic substances are closing in on us. They are the growing cause of the incessant rise in childhood tumours and all other types of tumours, neurodegenerative diseases, neonatal
malformations, sterility and so forth.
STOP VIVISECTION not only bears witness to the ethical stand taken by citizens wanting to respect all forms of life, but also to the impelling need to bring about change in scientific
research, failing which there is no hope to upgrade scientific progress in Europe and there is no hope for the protection of human health and of the environment.
Just as 2013 turned out to be the year of STOP VIVISECTION, we hope that 2014 will be remembered as the year in which the European Union will have made an epochal and
democratic change towards protecting human and animal health.
