POM kills in the name of juice

by Miss. Anne Thropic Sunday, Nov. 26, 2006 at 1:04 PM

POM uses vivisection to prove how "healthy" their juice is.

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 Evian 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.

Please support activists (many of whom lost computers and other items) and the campaign against POM. Visit www.PomKills.com for more info on POM, and email factogether (at) gmail.com to contact the POM Kills campaign. Meanwhile, contact POM and let them know just how disgusted you are with their company's treatment of
animals, and make sure to tell them you will be encouraging everyone you know to boycott their products.
