The European Union has been obliged to get free from all new cosmetic products tested on animals by the beginning of 2013. However, the European Union Authorities consider extending this deadline in spite of the strong public opposition against cosmetic products tested on animals and in spite of the current ban on testing cosmetic products on animals in EU countries, as well.
Belgrade, July 9, 2011
The European Coalition to End Animal Experiments (ECEAE) launched NO Cruel Cosmetics Campaign in EU. In May this year, our Phoenix society got status of Observer in ECEAE, so that we will be able to support the Campaign from very beginning.
The goal of the Campaign is to raise public pressure on authorities in each EUs member country to resolutely say NO to cruel cosmetic products in Europe.
Therefore, on Saturday, 9th of July our Phoenix society set a stand on Slavija, one of major squares in Belgrade in order to collect signatures for a petition in favour of the Campaign. We were pleasantly surprised by good response of our fellow citizens who signed the petition and were very interested about details of the Campaign, although on the spot temperature was 400C.
Besides signing of the petition, in the same time we organized rehoming of abandoned animals, as well.
