Subject: PLEASE HELP TO DEFEND POLISH ANIMAL WELFARE ACT - Urgent
Polish President has only to weeks to reject or accept devastating
changes in Polish Animal Welfare Act. You can make the difference -
President Kwasniewski listens very carefully to the World's public
opinion - please send the letter below urgently.
Thanks for your help,
Animal Welfare Institute, Poland
Mr. Aleksander Kwasniewski
President of the Republic of Poland
ul. Wiejska 10
00-902 Warsaw, Poland

Dear Mr. President,
As you know Polish Parliament accepted amendments to the Animal
Act which will have tremendous impact on situation of animals in
in the future.
Our big concern cause readings legalizing testing cosmetics on
shooting astray dogs and cats, using hormones in husbandry, limiting
voice of humane organizations and ignoring EU Directives requiring
creation of staging points for animals transports.
We observe a dangerous process of moving delegalized methods of
(battery cages for hens, mink farms from UK and Netherlands) from EU
countries to Poland because of liberal regulations and lack of
the rights of animals there.
Dear Mr. President, it is hardly to believe that the aim of Polish
authorities is to undermine EU countries' regulations securing humane
treatment of farm animals by importing cruel methods of husbandry and
compete on the market with higher EU standards.
At the time when Germany included animal rights in their constitution
EU is introducing ban on all cosmetic tests on animals, Poland has
an opposite direction. Poland with the second oldest animal welfare
society in the World is now swimming against the current of civilized
World - why it is possible?
We do hope that your country soon will be situated in the center of
Europe not only in geographic but also in moral sense.
