There’s no glamour… in cruel cosmetics

Background

Years ago, the European Parliament decided to ban all cosmetic products and ingredients tested on animals within the European Union by March 2013. However, under pressure from companies like ICI PARIS XL and L’Oreal, the European Union is considering to postpone this date.

These cosmetic companies claim that they weren’t given enough time to develop non-animal testing techniques. An absolute disgrace, since they had years to switch to non-animal testing methods, but simply choose not to. If they get their way it could mean 10 more years during which thousands of rabbits, guinea pigs, mice and rats will be injected, gassed, or force-fed and killed worldwide for cosmetics sold in the EU.

Today, on Wednesday the 29th of Februari 2012 (CET), Dutch / Belgian anti-vivisection organisation ADC will protest infront of ICI PARIS XL stores in Belgium, Europe to ask them to respect the deadline set by the European Parliament and to immediately start replacing their cruel cosmetics with cosmetics that are not tested on animals.

In addition, ADC is organizing an online protest by asking people to send an email to ICI PARIS XL to make sure the cruelty-free message, supported by millions of European citizens, will be heard by ICI PARIS XL.

Help save thousands of animals from a life of suffering and send a protest letter today!

    >Actually, in the very beginning of the Versus live coverage (I have it on Tivo) Al Trautwig had a profound monologue about the entire situation, putting it in perspective. They then had a panel discussion with all the coeoantmtmrs, Liggett and Sherwin included, that went on for some five minutes. The protest at the start may have simply been something they skipped in that they ALWAYS skip the start and possibly weren’t prepared to cover that.
