  • So right now

  • we are outside the Lush Regent Street Shop

  • And we have just witnessed some pretty brutal animal tests

  • being enacted on a human test subjects

  • The young girl called Nicole who’s 23 years old

  • a vegan and a performance artist

  • She has an issue that she has massive whereabouts

  • and I think that there’s still worst to come

  • So were already 11:30

  • This series of animal tests is going to last today

  • so endurance performance

  • The objective to Lush

  • is to take animals out of cosmetic testing first in the EU

  • And then we went to see that first to the world

  • So many people really don’t realize that

  • animal testing in the world is going on for the cosmetic industry

  • And they are killing millions of animals here

  • It’s a completely privilege use

  • and also it’s very unreliable the date that you get anyway

  • The cosmetics directive is

  • a really positive piece of legislation for animals

  • It was passed in 1993 at the request of

  • 20 years of campaigning by the public in Britain and across Europe

  • and it said that no animals could be tested on for cosmetics

  • But unfortunately, the cosmetics industry lobbied behind the scenes

  • after the legislation got passed

  • and they don’t want the delay and another delay then another delay

  • and so far

  • it’s been 20 years and theyre currently asking for another 10 years

  • So what were doing today

  • and weve been doing in our shops for the last week is get petitions signed

  • so that our customers can put their signatures something

  • that tells the EU parliament enough is enough

  • 30 years is a ridiculous amount of time

  • very soon it’s going to be a decision as to

  • whether to come back extra 10-year delay

  • And we say that cosmetics don’t need to be tested on animals

  • Lush shops have never done it

  • and there’s no damn reason for anyone else to do it

  • and we would really be angry

  • A lot more shocking than I anticipated

  • I think we kind of knew what was gonna happen

  • but I actually see them and the flesh not respected

  • always takes you bad

  • but it reiterates

  • why were doing what were doing at the end of the day

  • Were seeing buses come pass

  • and people are watching and looking with complete shock in their eyes

  • And try to find out on what is going on

  • and then you tell them

  • and there is just so much sympathy and empathy and hope

  • and here deside just kind of sign that petition

  • and they will decide to see this practice ends

  • This is our first ever global campaign

  • so and over 800 shops in 49 countries

  • People are running the fighting animal testing campaign

  • Still fighting animal testing!

  • The fact that this is one of our first campaigns

  • were all doing exactly the same time

  • to make it much more significant

  • and so much more powerful than anything weve ever done before

  • The man point down to me

  • if this weren’t an animal in our window that we were doing this too

  • we have the police down

  • we have the RSPCA down

  • we have all of the animal rights to jump it up

  • But you know the fact

  • this is something that goes on daily in the world

  • twist across the world

  • Without that with protest is really retiring

  • We just finished the performance in Regent Street

  • with the animal test subject being killed

  • and then taken out to the bins

  • and this is the reality for millions over the animals

  • This is how it ends for them

  • So if you really care about animal testing

  • please go down to your local Lush shop

  • sign the petition

  • ask them

  • how you can get involved in the fighting animal testing campaign

  • because together

  • we really can put stop to animal testing for the cosmetics industry

So right now
