Default Europe Tests Established Chemicals on Millions of Animals

Tony

TO: All People Who Care

I am a private individual posting this message to help
Laboratory Animals and us all. I apologize if this seems
out of place in this group but I think you need to know
this.

A new European Chemical Testing Policy called
REACH has now been finalised by the European
Union. Under these proposals Chemicals of every
kind - from those used in industrial processes to the
ingredients of consumer products - will be tested on
Millions of animals from mice to fish to dogs, causing
untold suffering.

Still worse, because of this reliance on outdated animal
techniques, reliable and relevant information will not be
provided and our safety will not be assured.

If you believe that REACH should make more use of
Alternative Testing to test 1000s of Chemicals that
have been in general use since before 1985 then
please take action now.

If you are a European citizen please contact your local
papers and own MEP asking them to promote the
development of humane non-animal testing methods
under the REACH legislation, which is the best hope
we have for sparing animals the misery of a testing
laboratory.

A sample letter can be found at the BUAV (British
Union for the Abolition of Vivisection) website at
www.BUAV.org (Select Campaigns, Chemical Testing,
Get Active then Writing to the local press).

For all Non-European members, you can still help.
Please tell all your colleagues and friends in the UK
and Europe about REACH. Write to your own local
papers to try and inform others about what is going
on in Europe.

The website for the European Parliament is
http://www.europarl.europa.eu.
Information on REACH, the New European Chemical
Testing Policy can be found here.

Everyone can help and you can make a difference.

Thank You
