(UK) Protester on hunger strike in city centre over animal rights
A CAMBRIDGE man is on hunger strike in the city centre in protest at Government plans which could lead to animal suffering.
Edmund Maile has starved himself of food since Saturday to highlight changes to animal rights laws which could come into force in 2013.
The 22-year-old, who has been drinking water, is standing outside Cambridge University's Senate House in King's Parade and handing out postcards to send to David Cameron condemning the new European Union directive which would see Britain's laws on the treatment of animals in labs fall in line with the rest of Europe.
