Tell International Olympics Committee To Drop P&G Partnership by 2016

Back in July 2010, P&G announced a global partnership with the International Olympics Committee (IOC) to cover the next five Olympic Games from London 2012 through to the 2020 Olympic Games. This is an unprecedented partnership for the IOC, given the portfolio of brands we bring to the table and their collective reach of more than 4.5 billion consumers. And it is unprecedented for P&G too, as we are bringing the P&G brand - the company behind our household names - to consumers all over the world. Now, in 2011, we are bringing the P&G Proud Sponsor of Mums campaign to the UK and Ireland.

WHAT THESE MONEY GRABBERS ARE NOT TELLING IS THE FACT THAT HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF ANIMALS DIE EVERY YEAR AT THE HANDS OF PROCTER & GAMBLE DUE TO THEIR PRODUCT TESTS. http://www.uncaged.co.uk/pgtesting.htm

Over a thousand hamsters, mice and rats forced to inhale tiny, %u2018nano-sized%u2019 particles

Mice genetically-engineered to create new ways of testing ingredients in cosmetic and cleaning products

Animals injured in hair care and fabric softener skin irritancy tests

Repeated painful and lethal skin allergy tests on guinea pigs and mice


Earlier P&G tests [2] include:

an acute toxicity test where dogs were force fed large amounts of a cleaning chemical by stomach tube [3]

cancer and toxicity tests on rats and mice of optical brighteners and other washing power ingredients

long-term poisoning tests in animals for colouring agents

71 mice were repeatedly force-fed a synthetic musk fragrance by tube

THESE TESTS ARE UNNECESSARY IN THIS DAY AND AGE. We have found new alternative means of testing products but Procter and Gamble refuse to implement them. They are the most uncivilized production company of them all.

We the Undersigned will absolutely boycott both the Olympic games and P&G Products for as long as these terrible tests continue.

Dear IOC Members

We The Undersigned Ask you to drop
your partnership with Procter and Gamble on the grounds of their horrific tests performed on live, helpless animals.

As a committee and as well educated humans you all know in your heart of hearts that these tests are wrong and horrifically cruel. and by sponsoring a partnership with a company like P and G you are directly responsible for the funding of yet more cruel tests
.
