Default Urgent Action Needed to help Millions of Laboratory Animals

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 test 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
