Spotted at Nassauplein, Amsterdam West. Poster of Marianne Thieme, for the general election next week. She is parliamentary leader of the Dutch Party for the Animals (‘Partij voor de Dieren’ in Dutch) and also vegan.
She co-founded the political party in 2002, with the aim of representing non-human animals in parliament. At the moment they hold two seats at the House of Representatives. They are the first political party worldwide focused on non-human animals to have achieved a position in parliament!
