Bloody clothes still banned from UK AR protest
A chain of laboratories breeding animals for medical research can still ban protesters from wearing 'blood-stained clothing' outside their offices.
The previously imposed court order was upheld by the High Court this week, although other restrictions for protests were relaxed.
Demonstrations have been taking place at the four sites operated by Harlan Laboratories UK -- in Sawtry Way, Wyton, Cambridgeshire, and three others in Leicestershire, Oxfordshire and Derbyshire.
Protests by the National Anti-Vivisection Alliance (NAVA), backed by Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC), began in April, and have featured activists sporting 'blood-stained' costumes, which they say represent the 'slaughter' of animals.
