Stop Procter and Gamble from Testing on Animals

Saen is working with Uncaged Campaigns to end animals testing at all P&G facilities and their contractor's facilities

PLEASE CROSS POST AND FORWARD TO ALL EMAIL LISTS AND ACTIVISTS

Fellow Activists,

The International Day of Action against Procter and Gamble is Saturday May 19th, 2007.

This is a very important event because the P&G corporation is a major slaughterer of animals using, at one point, over 50,000 animals per year in cruel testing. This testing puts toxic chemicals into the eyes of fully conscious rabbits. The same chemicals are force fed to rats and mice and placed onto the shaved/raw skin of guinea pigs.

Additionally, we have recently found that studies at P&G have subjected dogs to painful procedures without benefit of anesthesia. During 2004, the most recent period for which government reports are available, 4 dogs were used in Repeat Dose Toxicity studies. These tests are used for pharmaceutical evaluation. However, the use of animals in pharmaceutical testing has been questioned:

"Currently, nine out of ten experimental drugs fail in clinical studies because we cannot accurately predict how they will behave in people based on laboratory and animal studies"
-Mike Leavitt,
Secretary of Health and Human Services,
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
(Food and Drug Administration press release, FDA Issues Advice to Make Earliest Stages of Clinical Drug Development More Efficient, January 12, 2006)
http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/news/2006/NEW01296.html 

"Consider just one stark statistic: Today, nine out of 10 compounds developed in the lab fail in human studies. They fail, in large part because they behave differently in people than they did in animal or laboratory tests."
-Andrew C. von Eschenbach, M.D.
Acting Commissioner of Food and Drugs, FDA

Right now one of the most important things we can do is to continue to educate consumers about the suffering of animals for P&G products and the fact that they don't have to support these atrocities. Many corporations now make consumer products without the use of animal-based safety testing and these products are available in many of the same locations as P&G products.

We have a product testing fact sheet posted on our website at: http://www.all-creatures.org/wlalw/fact-product.pdf
This fact sheet is in printable format. You can simply download the file and take it to any copy shop for reproduction.

The best places for events to target P&G are either retail outlets (grocery/department stores such as Wal-Mart, etc.) where P&G products are sold. Effective events can be anything from leaflettting to full protests. P&G product dumps can also be effective. The most recent facility list for P&G is at: http://www.pandgkills.com/boycott/pgfacil.html

These links are best utilized by pasting them into your internet browser.

Remember, as long as consumers give their dollars to companies like P&G, animals will continue to suffer.

Please inform us of your participation in this event as soon as possible, as it is rapidly approaching. You can use our participation form at:

Thank you in advance for your help.
