    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

    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    Still worse, because of this reliance on outdated animal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

    A sample letter can be found at the BUAV (British
    Union for the Abolition of Vivisection) website at (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
    Information on REACH, the New European Chemical
    Testing Policy can be found here.

    Everyone can help and you can make a difference.

    Thank You
