“A young woman was restrained, force-fed and injected with cosmetics in a high street shop window as part of a hard-hitting protest against animal testing.
Jacqueline Traide was tortured in front of hundreds of horrified shoppers in a bid to raise awareness and end the practise.
The 24-year-old endured 10 hours of experiments, which included having her hair shaved and irritants squirted in her eyes, as part of a worldwide campaign by Lush Cosmetics and The Humane Society.
The disturbing stunt took place in Lush’s Regent Street store, one of the UK’s busiest shopping streets.
Jacqueline appeared genuinely terrified as she was pinned down on a bench and had her mouth stretched open with two metal hooks while a man in a white coat force-fed her until she choked and gagged.
The artist was also injected with numerous needles, had her skin braised and lotions and creams smeared across her face.
Passers-by were gobsmacked to see Jacqueline, a social sculpture student at Oxford Brookes University, forced to have a section of her head shaved.
The gruesome spectacle aimed to highlight the cruelty inflicted on animals during cosmetic laboratory tests and raise awareness that animal testing is still a common practise.
The Humane Society International and Lush Cosmetics have joined forces to launch the largest-ever global campaign to end animal testing for cosmetics.
The campaign, launched to coincide with World Week for Animals in Laboratories, is being rolled out simultaneously in over 700 Lush Ltd shops across forty-seven countries including the United States, Canada, India, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and Russia.
Lush campaign manager Tamsin Omond said: “The ironic thing is that if it was a beagle in the window and we were doing all these things to it, we’d have the police and RSPCA here in minutes.
“But somewhere in the world, this kind of thing is happening to an animal every few seconds on average.
“The difference is, it’s normally hidden. We need to remind people it is still going on.”

EARTH HOUR 2O14

It’s that time of year again!

Saturday, the 29th of March, homes, offices and famous landmarks around the globe will switch off their lights at 8:30pm local time, for one hour, to mark the World Wildlife Fund’s ‘Earth Hour’.

Now in its eight year, this worldwide event attempts to bring to the forefront environmental issues which face us today and into the future.

This year’s Earth Hour nicely coincides with the release of the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change; Climate Change being the biggest environmental threat facing our planet.

Earth Hour first began in Australia in 2007 and since then it has grown to be the world’s largest environmental event.

This year, the WWF has launched Earth Hour Blue, a digital crowd funding and crowd sourcing platform that enables participants to help raise funds and take action on a range of environmental issues (See here:http://www.earthhour.org/).

A big part of Earth Hour is about empowerment, celebrating the idea that you as an individual can do something and together we can do anything.

Join us here at TES this Saturday and turn off your lights.

See you under the stars!
