No Animal Protection without Democratic Representation

The case of Britain demonstrates that unless animal interests and related public opinion enjoy institutionalised representation within governments, they routinely lose political and public policy battles to commercial interests. Developing animal rights movements can learn vital lessons about the need to entrench any social and cultural advances for animals and promote conditions for future progress by achieving structural changes in political systems.
