New Zealand - Protest vs. Lab Animal Caregivers

A Wellington gathering of the caregivers who look after animals used in scientific research has not been disrupted by protests staged by anti-vivisection protestors, says one of its organisers.

Protesters have said they plan a street protest tomorrow night.

Malcolm France, president of the Australia and New Zealand Laboratory Animal Association (ANZSLAA) said the conference at the Duxton Hotel was continuing.
A spokesman for the Wellington Animal Rights Network, Mark Eden, alleged the people at the conference were "directly responsible" for the deaths of thousands of animals in laboratories around the country.

"They should not be allowed to walk the streets and have conferences where they admire the surgery tools and cages on display, and talk about how they can improve their animal killing techniques".
