Please HELP Support a Ban on Primate Testing in Europe

To: All European Citizens who care about Animals

This is a critical time. The European Commission (EC) is currently
revising the law - known as Directive 86/609 - that governs animal
experiments across Europe.

86/609 is a hugely powerful Directive that has power of life and death
over millions of animals across the continent - setting out minimum
standards for how and whether animals can be used in experiments.

A staggering ten million animals are used in outdated and wasteful
experiments in European laboratories every year. The Directive is
supposed to ensure "the protection of animals used for experimental
and other scientific purposes" but the huge numbers show that it's
just not doing that.

There is a real possibility that with enough support the EC will ban
all primate tests as part of the revised law.

Written Declaration 40/2007 urges the European Parliament to use the
revision process of Directive 86/609/EC as an opportunity to establish
a timetable for replacing the use of all primates in scientific
experiments with alternatives. The Declaration will fall on 7th
September and the signatures of half the MEPs in the Parliament is
needed by then.

If you care about animals visit the following website to urge them to
sign Written Declaration 40/2007.

If you want to do more:-

Please write to the European Commission and ask them to ban primate
tests. To help, a prepared letter can be found at

The address is:-
Mr. Stavros Dimas
Commissioner for Environment
European Commission
B-1049, Brussels, Belgium

Please tell all your colleagues and friends in the UK and Europe about
Written Declaration 40/2007.

For information on Alternatives to Animal Testing and why they work
visit the Dr Hadwen Trust

Thank You
