150 activists today held a loud, noisy and visual demonstration through Bradford against the University of Bradford’s animal testing laboratory and calling for its closure.

The march started off in Centenary Square, where speeches were made by Luke Steele, spokesperson for Stop Animal Experiments at Bradford (SAEAB) who talked about the determination of activists to achieve their goals and how if we need to start another campaign like Girton, then we will. Next up was Amanda Richards from Speak Campaigns who spoke about the need to focus in university animal research facilities and the campaign to shut down such laboratories, like Bradford and Oxford.
Debbie Vincent from Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty then spoke about the SHAC campaign and how 40% of the UK’s vivisection is conducted inside university laboratories, such as Bradford and how we need to remain focused and close these hell holes down. Sean Kirtley, who was wrongfully imprisoned under SOCPA, then spoke about how we need to carry on supporting political prisoners, despite state oppression and violence.
