Ban Chicken Cages
Update: Victory! The parliament passed new regulations that BAN cages in the egg industry!
The new regulations prohibit the construction of new chicken cages, and set a timeline for phasing out the existing cages.
Thank you to the thousands of supporters who fought for the chickens!
The Israeli Government plans to give the local egg industry hundreds of millions of shekels, in order to build cramped cages for egg laying hens. These cruel battery cages have been banned by progressive countries.
If built, millions of hens will be sentenced to life. A hen in a cage will never see the light of day; she will never play in the sand; never be able to spread her wings.
Many Israelis are calling out to the Israeli government: we will not agree for our tax money to be used to build animal torture facilities!
