news release

Saturday 24th May 2003

Uncaged Campaigns are again joining forces with US group In Defense of Animals, and activists all over the world, for an international day of action to highlight and oppose Procter & Gamble's (P&G) poisoning and killing of animals in the development of their consumer products. Please join us in this successful and growing anti-vivisection campaign!

The Day of Action Global Boycott P&G Day VII on Saturday 24th May 2003 is this year's centrepiece of our wide-ranging campaign to spread the boycott of this company far and wide until they permanently cease harming and killing animals. Last year there were over 125 events in 25 different countries around the world, and over 80 in the UK. Each action had the same message:

"If you buy Procter & Gamble products, you may as well be holding the knife yourself!"

P&G on the Back Foot!

Hundreds of thousands of UK consumers - and many more globally - have already blacklisted P&G products, costing P&G, we estimate, over £10 million a year in the UK alone! P&G cannot continue to absorb such losses indefinitely, and their increasingly desperate 'spin' and concealment of their pro-vivisection lobbying reveal how worried this company really is by our growing movement for change. The on-going scandal over IAMS' vivisection is inflicting huge embarrassing - and damage - on P&G. Once a company as huge as P&G changes policy, other companies will come under enormous pressure to also cease animal testing.

The Importance of Being Persistent

Animals suffer at the hands of P&G researchers throughout the year, so our efforts to stop them must be unremitting. In addition to participating in Global Boycott P&G Day VII, please also hold demonstrations and stalls in the weeks leading up to P&G Day and throughout the year.

If you have completed P&G pledges/petitions, please return them to us by 14th May 2003 for us to submit to P&G's HQ in Newcastle-upon-Tyne on the eve of P&G Day.
