Pamela Anderson Shuts Herself in Cage to Protest Factory Farming

PARIS – Canadian-American actress Pamela Anderson shut herself in a cage in a Paris square on Wednesday for a symbolic protest against caged animal farming.

Anderson and her French TV dance partner Maxime Deremez stood inside a small metal cage to condemn factory farming during the “End the Cage Age” protest, organized by the international NGO Compassion in World Farming.

Wearing dark sunglasses, Anderson held a sign in French and English that read “I am a ‘cage fighter.’”

The campaign, launched by the European Citizens’ Initiative, is looking to end caged farming for 370 million animals in Europe, including 90 million in France, according the CIWF’s data.

If the initiative collects one million signatures over the course of a year in at least seven EU countries, the European Commission would be required to take an official stance on the method of farming, which opponents deem cruel and inhumane.

However, EU institutions would not be obliged to take legislative measures as a result of any hypothetical stance against cage farming.

According to the 2016 Eurobarometer poll by the European Commission, 89 percent of surveyed citizens were in favor of introducing European legislation that guarantees the welfare of animals raised for commercial purposes.

Anderson is in France to take part in the French version of the reality television show “Dancing with the Stars.”
