Thrust of argument: In an item entitled "Extensive Chemical Safety Fraud Uncovered at German Testing Laboratory", Jonathan Latham writes in Counterpunch about terrifying findings by undercover activists and writers pertaining to the safety of products you and your children and parents are exposed to. Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Latham advises us:

<<

LPT Hamburg, with around 175 employees, is one of the largest contract laboratories in Germany. It is a family owned private company. It prepares regulatory studies on behalf of the pharmaceutical and pesticide industries and has three locations: Mienenbüttel in Lower Saxony, Neugraben in Hamburg and Wankendorf in Schleswig-Holstein.

An initial case of fraud was reported in 2019 by the German magazine FAKT, which worked with the animal rights organisations Cruelty Free Internationaland SOKO-Tierschutz to expose the findings of the undercover employee. The disturbing irregularities they discovered included the death and replacement of animals without this being reported to authorities.

This distressing video from FAKT summarises the findings and was filmed at LPT.

But since the initial investigation by FAKT five former employees of LPT Hamburg have come forward with new information.

Removal of resistance: Statements from witnesses run along these lines:

<<

These animals, especially in the high-dose group, actually had completely open skin - so it was the raw meat that was visible, miserable really miserable. [..] In fact, one animal died in the high-dose group and was replaced by another animal. Here, too, the tattoo number, which is in the chest area of the animal, was cut out of the dead animal and added to the organs of the replaced animal after the end of the study. So that it looks as if this animal had not died at all.

>>

and

<<

So, a few months after I left LPT, I contacted the responsible authorities here. And had an appointment. And in this appointment we discussed the LPT issue together. It was also about manipulation of data and of course about the fact that studies were so strongly influenced that it was not compatible with my conscience.

>>

Latham tells us, then, that << the employee never heard from the authority again >>
Unification: Of course you don't have to worry about all this if you don't actually give a shit about your own children.

As for the next generation, you need to read all this and share it and blog about it and get moving on it. These fuckheads will continue to rape your future, it's up to you to change that future right now. Use the means at your disposal. One primary fuel these arseholes rely on is consumerism, your money, your purchasing decisions. You need to be strong and say no to their crap. Just say no, kids. Choose truth, not consumerism. Fuck them and their products.
