      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
