Cincinnati, OH -- A world wide coalition of animal rights groups is targeting consumer products giant Procter & Gamble with protests this Saturday, May 21st. Activists in 16 US cities and 13 foreign countries have declared this Saturday the "International Day of Action against Procter & Gamble."

Uncaged Campaigns in Great Britain will coordinate the event internationally. US events are coordinated by the Cincinnati-based Stop Animal Exploitation NOW! (SAEN). Protests are taking place in major U.S. cities like Boston, Detroit, New York, San Diego, Phoenix, and Baltimore. A full list of US protests is available at: www.saenonline.org/events-pg-2005.html .

Protests are also planned in: Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, South Africa, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Italy, Israel, and about 80 events are taking place in Great Britain.

"Procter and Gamble has deliberately misled consumers into believing they are one of the good guys regarding animal testing," said Michael A. Budkie, A.H.T., SAEN's Executive Director. "Nothing could be further from the truth. We intend to make sure that consumers get the facts."

"The aim of the campaign is to apply financial pressure to P&G to persuade them to stop animal tests," said Dan Lyons, Uncaged Campaigns Director. "Once people are informed, they're eager to boycott P&G because they don't want to pay for gratuitous animal suffering, and they can see that hundreds of companies make similar products without resorting to cruel testing methods."

SAEN has announced that this event is the kickoff of their anti-P&G campaign. More protests are planned for later this year, including the infamous P&G shareholders meeting. Past protests at the October gathering have been raucous, including arrests and the burning of P&G products.
