Meat advertising ban
The administration of the city of Haarlem, west of the Dutch capital Amsterdam, has decided to ban meat advertising from public space starting in 2024. This makes it the first city in the world to add meat to the list of harmful products that cannot be advertised.
According to the authors of this ban, the livestock industry is one of the main causes of the climate and biodiversity crisis, which is why the municipality wants to reduce meat consumption.
In the same order of initiatives, MEP Anja Hazekamp from the Party for Animals in the Netherlands, asks European Commissioner Frans Timmermans to stop subsidies for meat advertisements in other states of the European community.
