Stop the Badger Killers

Help is needed to 'monitor' the killing areas and individuals take action to save badgers' (and other animals) lives. Please contact 07811 629846 or 0776 342 4892.

Speak Out Against Vivisection

After failing to build a primate vivisection lab at Cambridge (SchNEWS 439), mad scientists are now trying a more subtle approach by building an “animal housing facility” at Oxford University, which will (surprise!) be doing some of the same research that was going to be done at Cambridge. In a desperate attempt to hoodwink the public, the new project has been euphemistically called a research “hotel” in the planning application. Some Hotel!—Where you get kept in solitary wire cages, injected with drugs, deliberately brain damaged and then killed. In response to this latest development, the campaign that stopped the Cambridge lab has been resurrected to fight the new proposals.

Save the Newchurch Guinea Pigs

Rescued from torture by the ALF
Regular demos from 11am at Darley Oaks, (A515) Newchurch, Staffs [map] on Wednesdays and Sundays, and empty days/evenings that need filling.  

For over 30 years now, David Hall and Partners of Newchurch near Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, UK have been breeding guinea pigs to sell to vivisection laboratories. There are 10,000 guinea pigs there at any one time living in disgusting conditions, waiting to be to be tortured to death at the hands of this brutal industry. Today and every day 55 people die due to adverse drug reactions in the UK alone. "The moral is that animal model systems not only kill animals, they also kill humans!" Dr Irwin Bross, former director of the world's largest cancer research institute. David Hall and Partners continue to profit from this scientific fraud and massive abuse of life, human and guinea pig alike.

Saturday 1st : : Mayday anti-capitalist Day of Action

London Animal Action is organising a major protest against capitalism and human and animal exploitation on May 1st 2004. Under the banner, 'Kill Capitalism, Not Animals!' we will be marching through central London and targetting companies such as McDonald's and fur shops, of which there are many in the area. There are other one-off targets as well, including a bloodsports shop and the HQ of the Resarch Defence Society, the group whose only reason for existing is defending the torture and murder of laboratory animals.

We are inviting other groups to join us and bring their own banners. Let's make this as big as possible and show the state it can't intimidate us. Tell everyone you know to join us by assembling at Piccadilly Circus, by the statue of Eros, at 12noon on May 1st.
