Are All Kids Really That Bad?
Contact: Ryan Courtade, [email protected]

On July 17, 2000, from 10:00-2:00 at Fountain Square, in Cincinnati Ohio, teenagers will be taking a stand for what they believe is right. Many teenagers will be conducting a protest against Procter and Gamble's animal testing.

This protest calls for Procter and Gamble to end its animal testing. Procter and Gamble continues to test on animals, even though no law requires it. Also there are more than 550 other companies that do not test on animals.

If corporations as big as Gillette and Revlon can ensure their customers safety by using non-animal tests, why can't Procter and Gamble?

Proctor & Gamble has blinded and poisoned thousands of animals, including mice, rats, rabbits, and guinea pigs. During such tests, laboratory workers drip chemicals into the eyes of restrained rabbits, force substances down the animals' throats and fill their cages with toxic fumes. No surprise that such poisoning can cause convulsions, vomiting, bleeding from the nose and mouth and painful deaths. The animals are often locked into restraining devices so they cannot escape the pain; they do not get sedatives or post-exposure painkillers. Some animals used in such tests have broken their necks or backs trying to escape.

Love All Animals is calling for all people wanting to come to the protest to contact Ryan at <[email protected]>

Also another local group will be attending. And many members from other national groups will also be helping out.
