Subject: Blockbuster/Univ.Florida




Dear Blockbuster/Dish,

I’m writing today because I found your name on the University of Florida’s special bragging list- the “honor roll” of generous donors. I want you to know I’m going to ask my friends and your supporters in the coming weeks to enjoy movies from your competitors until you no longer support the University of Florida!

No place that does archaic experiments on animals can “clean up their act”- they need to ban animal testing completely at their school. The whole country of Canada has recently committed to this ban in all of their universities, so a single university has no excuse. There’s no work that you do that can make up for supporting an institution using living, feeling, innocent animals for agonizing experiments. I think the only way for you to keep your “good name” is to stop donating money to the University of Florida until they ban prim

Dear Blockbuster/Dish,

I’m writing today because I found your name on the University of Florida’s special bragging list- the “honor roll” of generous donors. I want you to know I’m going to ask my friends and your supporters in the coming weeks to enjoy movies from your competitors until you no longer support the University of Florida!

No place that does archaic experiments on animals can “clean up their act”- they need to ban animal testing completely at their school. The whole country of Canada has recently committed to this ban in all of their universities, so a single university has no excuse. There’s no work that you do that can make up for supporting an institution using living, feeling, innocent animals for agonizing experiments. I think the only way for you to keep your “good name” is to stop donating money to the University of Florida until they ban primate testing.

Here’s a link to the UF website where you are honored for contributing to a university mired in controversy about their animal experiments.

SEE THE LATEST FROM A UF WHISTLEBLOWER:
http://emptyallcages.com/category/university-of-florida-2/

- UF CHOOSES primate torture, most times using 2 and 3 year old primate toddlers, when there are thousands of non-animal alternatives available to teach and use right now.http://emptyallcages.com/non-animal-alternatives/ 

- UF broke the law, was sued and lost to activists when they refused to submit their veterinarian records for the primates they have hurt. 
http://www.negotiationisover.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/judge-lotts-order-jan-5-2012.pdf

The bottom line is that’s what those involved with archaic animal research will be able to say- it must be OK since large corporations give to UF. I think Blockbuster/Dish should pull their money from UF until UF bans animal testing. PLEASE help me ensure that your donations don’t become UF blood money by contacting UF today. Your letter can make a difference as a voice for innocent animals trapped in a brutal laboratory.


Thank you for your immediate attention to these innocent suffering animals,

 


Sincerely:

Subject: Wolfs/US



Sir:

 

Truely man is the king of beasts, for his brutality exceeds theirs. 
The time will come when people will look upon the murder of 
animals as they now look upon the murder of men.

From: Leonardo daVinci,  likely the most creative human genius who has ever lived.

The DNR (Minnesota Division of Natural Resources) has stated that the 
hunt will have no effect on the deer herd or depredation of livestock 
and their reasons for having it are for "social reasons." So we are 
going to have a hunt on an animal (the wolf) that only forty years ago 
was brought to the brink of extinction. An animal that was the victim 
of some of the worst crimes of humanity, burned alive, skinned alive, 
hunted from the air, and killed by massive campaigns of poisoning.
From: Barry Babcock, an honorable Minnesota deer hunter and respectful wolf friend

America's wolves are being persecuted, tortured and slaughtered in 
Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and Wisconsin. 163 innocent, ecologically 
vital and beautiful wolves have been slaughtered in just 57 days. 
Snared by their necks to slowly strangle. Trapped by a delicate paw in 
excruciatingly painful torture traps, awaiting execution. Shot in the 
gut to suffer horribly for the amusement of mentally disturbed humans. 
Wolf families, mothers, fathers, wolf pups. These intelligent, 
sensitive, social, family-oriented beings, created by a loving God, 
are being persecuted and killed for no reason, other than to satisfy 
the blood lust and violence of wolf demonizing liars and animal abusers.

Minnesota's Governor, Mark Dayton, and you, Natural Resources 
Commissioner,   want to join the wolf demonizers, liars and killers of 
Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and Wisconsin. The prior image of Minnesota as 
a more enlightened, wholesome state has been casually tossed out the 
window.

I demand that Minnesota's "leaders" cancel this wolf massacre now, 
before it begins. Re-instate the reasonable and wise five year 
moratorium on any potential hunting of wolves, that was in place until 
recently. Respect the clear voice of the 80% OF RESPONDENTS to an 
on-line survey, sponsored by Minnesota's own Division of Natural 
Resources, WHO VOTED THAT THERE BE NO HUNTING OR TRAPPING OF 
MINNESOTA'S WOLVES!

angela.ahrendts@burberry.com, corporate.responsibility@burberry.com, customerservice@burberry.com, press.office@burberry.com, tailoring@burberry.com,  bespoke@burberry.com ,   Sample letter:

 

Dear Sir, Madam;

I would like to address myself to you because of the fur your shop is still selling.
As you know, many celebrities worldwide stopped using fur because of the horrific cruel way fur is 'produced' .
Millions of animals, cats, dogs, raccoon dogs, foxes, rabbits, the list is endless, are kept under terrible conditions and then 
skinned while still alive, because, according to the Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai and Korean skinners, amongst others, involved in this,   'the hair on the coat will 
stand up better because of the excruciating pain inflicted on the animal ' and 'because it is easier while the body is still warm'.......
 These people are without any mercy, compassion or ethics.  I cannot believe that you would be able to accept the way these animals, often stolen pets, have to suffer.
I refer to the following links:
http://www.tierschutz.com/movies/pelz_mediaplayer.wmv 


The other kind of fur comes from trapping:  magnificent animals who are trapped in there own surroundings and suffer in agony for days, sometimes weeks.

There are beautiful alternatives for the coats of our animal earthlings, easier to wear and to clean, synthetic imitation fur.


I hope you will be convinced, and stop selling fur!


Sincerely:

All signed !
