Press Release

NISSAN - DRIVEN...TO CRUELTY

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WHITE PLAINS, NY June 28, 2001 Members of Animal Defenders of Westchester will gather for a demonstration on Thursday, June 28th, outside of the Nissan dealership at 500 Tarrytown Road, from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. to protest their current ad campaign that promotes the horrific 'sport' of bullfighting.

The animal protection community has bombarded the Nissan Motor Corporation with requests to pull a bizarre ad they are running in which a car with a cape on it chases a live bull. In a sea of questionable commercials involving animals, this one stands out for glorifying the archaic monstrosity of staged fighting between animal and man.

Nissan says they are 'sensitive to consumer's complaints' while they refuse to pull the ad; this is, in reality, JUNK sensitivity - a total LACK of sensitivity that demeans us all.

Please help us send a message to advertisers, for the sake of the animal's dignity. "Cockfighting is legal in three states - can we soon look forward to seeing THAT in a commercial for toothpaste?" says Kiley Blackman, the organizer of this event.
