POMEGRANATE Juice contains a variety of vitamins, such as A, B, C, and E, which are considered very beneficial for blood purification and circulation. Traditional Middle Eastern medical books recount the benefits of the pomegranate in the treatment of diabetes, stomach digestion, and cleansing of the kidneys. Today, pomegranate is being hailed by many as a source of antioxidants and anthocyanins that contribute to combating cancer, lowering cholesterol levels and reducing hardening of the arteries. As quoted from Newsweek, Special Health Edition- 2001 . Pomegranate Juice can “increase blood levels of an enzyme that appears to break up arterial plaque.” * Now you can see why it's so good for you.

This was on DC indy media.

This week, seven activists in Los Angeles had their homes raided in
connection with a campaign against the POM Wonderful juice company,
makers
of POM pomegranate juice and Figi water.
POM has funded $10 million in research into the health effects of its
juice,
including conducting numerous studies on animals which included
inducing
erectile disfunction and depriving newborn mice of oxygen to the brain.
The
raids are yet another transparent attempt by the government to stifle
free
speech at the request of large corporations (POM is based in Santa
Monica,
CA, the town whose police carried out the raids) - and another sign of
just
how scared these animal-abusing companies are of being picketed,
protested,
and exposed for what they do. POM executives have stated in court
filings
that they have left their homes for up to a week at a time for fear of
being
demonstrated against, and the LA Times recently covered the campaign
and
mentioned POM's cruel torture of animals.

In yet another odd twist in this Green Scare, POM Wonderful, the juice
company, is using the scare tactics of the New McCarthyists to go after
one
of its core consumer bases: the vegan, natural foods set.

POM filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court last week,
saying
that a looming threat posed by illegal activism calls for banning
activists
from protesting and posting information about the company on their
websites.

If you’re totally confused right now, just wait, it gets more bizarre.
Here’s some background first: POM has built its juice empire by touting
the
health benefits of pomegranate juice on its website and in the press.
Activists are pissed because they say the company spends millions on
animal
research to showcase the health benefits of juice, all the while
branding
itself as a caring, natural foods company.

Animal testing for… juice? Activists say POM’s animal tests include
“lowering the brain oxygen levels in newborn mice to cause them brain
injuries and ‘forcing their mothers to drink water mixed with
pomegranate
concentrate,’” according to Jessica Garrison at The Los Angeles Times.

It looks like POM isn’t the first juice company to come under fire for
this.
Welch’s and Ocean Spray have both already caved to activist pressure.
But
POM doesn’t want to follow suit:

    In their court papers, company officials say they believe the
protesters
are affiliated with the Animal Liberation Front, which the FBI has said
is a
domestic terror threat. And the company is fighting back, asking a
judge to
fine activists $1,000 if they post personal information about POM
employees
on websites. Company officials also want a judge to order activists not
to
picket or demonstrate outside the homes of the juice company’s
employees.

As POM admits, though, no employees have experienced any violence as
part of
this campaigning. At worst, employees have seen legal protests at their
homes, which can you can read more about on L.A. Indymedia.

And even if property destruction or threats had taken place, the
activists
responsible for those crimes should be prosecuted independently: POM
can’t
simply try to paint ALL protests of their business practices as
illegal. It
doesn’t matter if POM “believes” activists are affiliated with the
underground Animal Liberation Front, because that’s not grounds for
taking
away basic First Amendment rights. POM clearly wants to silence
activists
that expose their business practices, and is willing to go to great
lengths–
including this “eco-terrorist” scare-mongering– to do it.

It shows the danger of all this “eco-terrorist” rhetoric: it sets a
precedent for anyone to use green baiting to silence dissent, even a
juice
company targeting health-conscious vegan consumers.
