TO: All People Who Care

A new European Chemical Testing Policy
called REACH has now been finalised by
the European Union. Under these proposals
Chemicals of every imaginable 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.

If you believe that REACH should make more
use of Alternative Testing to test its Chemicals
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. Everyone
can help and you can make a difference.

Thank You
