Dear Secretary Rice,.. As you know, the Doggett Amendment prohibits key government agencies from promoting the sale of tobacco products overseas, or working to reduce other countries' non-discriminatory tobacco control regulations.. (1).. In this context, we write to inquire about reports that the U.. Ambassador to Thailand, Ralph Boyce, in August 2006 coordinated a meeting of U.. industry representatives, including Philip Morris representatives, with the Thai Health Minister.. The reported purpose of the meeting was protest existing advertising restrictions on cigarettes.. According to Thai media accounts, the tobacco industry representatives demanded that cigarettes not be subjected to more severe advertising restrictions than other forms  ...   messages were communicated by Ambassador Boyce and tobacco industry attendees about public health-based advertising restrictions.. We request as well that you provide us with your understanding of whether this meeting complied with the Doggett Amendment.. We also request that you inform us of any other meetings with foreign governments that U.. government representatives have attended over the last six years in conjunction with tobacco industry representatives.. We would appreciate receiving your response by January 30, 2007.. If you have any questions, please contact Rep.. Doggett's office at 202-225-4865.. Sincerely,.. Henry Waxman, Ranking Member Lloyd Doggett, Member.. Committee on Government Reform Committee on Ways and Means..

The concert is being sponsored by the tobacco industry, Djarum Super Mezzo (a clove cigarette brand)..

If not, pull out of the concert.. 2) Pledge not to be sponsored by the tobacco industry in the future, e.. g.. in the form of a public statement.. 3) Take the necessary measures to ensure that his name is not associated with a tobacco company or brand in the future..

  • Title: International Sign-on Letter to WHO Executive Board re: Julio Frenk
    Descriptive info: Dear Executive Board Member,.. We are writing to express our opposition to the Director-General candidacy of Dr.. Julio Frenk, and to encourage you not to lend your support to him.. There are many enormous public health challenges confronting the world.. Among the most serious is the toll of death and disease exacted by cigarette smoking.. We are concerned that Dr.. Frenk, in his capacity as Mexican Minister of Health, entered into a negotiation with the multinational tobacco industry.. The result was an agreement by which the industry made a modest financial contribution to a health insurance fund.. But the deal made the health ministry an effective partner with the tobacco industry, gave the industry a public relations boost and political cover to deter future regulation, and by its terms directly undermined the government's ability to enact effective tobacco control measures.. Every candidate for Director General has indicated the importance they place on tobacco control.. Only Dr.. Frenk has reported entering into a negotiation with the multinational tobacco companies.. Unfortunately, rather than state that the negotiation was a mistake and violation of the spirit of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, Dr.. Frenk continues to insist it was proper.. We do not doubt Dr.. Frenk's commitment to advancing a global health agenda.. But on the crucial matter of international tobacco control, we believe that his involvement with the agreement with the tobacco industry -- which he refuses to renounce -- disqualifies him as a final candidate for the Director-General post.. We therefore urge you not to support his candidacy.. International.. Global Smokefree Partnership.. International Union Against Cancer (UICC)..  ...   Tabagisme (CNCT).. Georgia..

That's the message youth from around the country will deliver at the tobacco giant's annual shareholder meeting today.. More than 50 teenagers from tobacco control groups across the country plan on protesting new, high-profile marketing campaigns from Reynolds designed to make smoking appear hip and glamorous.. These exploitive tactics hook young people into a lifetime of addiction to a product that kills if used as intended, said Morgan Wittman of North Carolina s Youth Empowered Solutions.. Ending the tobacco epidemic requires that tobacco companies stop recruiting a new generation of customers..
