End the Cage Age: 24-hour live broadcast from cages

Brenda Ferretti
Campaigns manager

At 10 pm today, we will launch a 24-hour live broadcast from four different factory farms, to show the sad lives of animals in Italy that still live confined in cages. This is the first initiative of its kind in Italy.

We have carried out this project to lend strength to the End the Cage Age campaign, the coalition that aims to end the use of cages for animals reared for food and consists of a genuine direct broadcast from rabbit, calf, sow and chicken farms, where the animals suffer in extreme conditions of confinement and with no possibility of expressing their natural behaviours.

There is still much to be done for caged animals

The End the Cage Age initiative has collected over 1.4 million validated signatures across Europe and its first success was a commitment by the European Commission to work towards an EU ban on caged farming – also regarded by the scientific community as a farming method at odds with animal welfare and criticised by the latest opinion of EFSA, the European Food Safety Authority.

However, there is still a lot of work to be done: in Italy more than 40 million animals are still raised in these conditions and it is essential for the government and companies to work together to stop this practice, in line with what is also requested by citizens. According to a survey by YouGov Plc (2020), 84% of Italian citizens believe that the use of cages is cruel to animals and 83% want agricultural funds to be used to encourage the transition to cage-free farms.
