This Product Has To GO!

#1 Postby robert » Sun Jul 17, 2005 11:33 pm

This Product Has To Go! is the title of a program that Natalie (Compassionategirl) came up with months ago, and Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness decided to roll with it.

It was on our old forum I'll have to search for it again in the archives to find some of the specifics.

Basically, it is targeting products that are tested on animals, contain animal products, and/or are cruel in nature.

Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness is sponsoring this program, and we hope to send a lot of letters to companies expressing our concern for the ethical practices behind the production of their products.

We can post some sample letters here as examples so you can copy it, or write your own.

We will also list products and companies to write to.

I'm aware that most letters just get thrown away, but I think it is worth a try.

Any suggestions are welcome as well. This program is new but we want to see if we can save some lives. We can target some small stores all the way up to Giant Corporations.

Please get involved.

Thanks,

Robert

Okay, here is the product that should be featured this week. It is propoganda, :evil: that is going to try to brian wash people and mislead them about modern animal agriculture. The info below contains the details. Please read this and write to your local stations immediately and ask them to REFUSE to air this propaganda. YOu can find information on who to contact in your area by clicking on the link at the end of the article. The animals NEED us on this one big time - please make this your activism of the week, please. We cannot allow false information to be spread about how great factory farmed animals really have it - this is a travesty and will just encourage people to eat more animals. We need to start contacting stations NOW and stay on top of this by following up with them after that.

Dear Activist,
The factory-farming industry, including agribusiness giant Monsanto and the American Farm Bureau (a front group for corporate agriculture), has collaborated with a California public television network to produce a TV series called America’s Heartland. The show’s producers claim that they will profile “the people, places, and processes of today’s agribusiness.” But if the show’s trailer and the show’s predecessor, California’s Heartland, are any indication, America’s Heartland will do its best to mislead viewers about the true nature of the modern meat, egg, and dairy industries.

The show’s trailer creates the illusion that farmed animals are raised on small, idyllic farms where they are given plenty of space and fresh air. In reality, the vast majority of animals raised for food in the United States suffer immeasurably on huge, industrial factory farms, where they are confined and mutilated before being violently killed. The corporate sponsors of America’s Heartland are very concerned about the growing public outrage surrounding the abuse of animals on modern factory farms. These companies have already shelled out more than a million dollars to produce this show, all in an effort to trick Americans about the way farmed animals are treated.

Monsanto and the American Farm Bureau are offering the show to 300 U.S. public television stations this fall. Please politely ask your local public station to refuse to air America’s Heartland and other agribusiness propaganda. Find the contact information for your station by going here:
