Under this document animals will continue to be experimented on, in large numbers, for reasons which have nothing to do with finding cures for diseases - PLEASE urge MEPs to take a much stronger line and ensure that the future legislation introduces ...

He's  great guy - please show him support (I'll send him all your comments and link to the share)

He's been on hunger strike from yesterday, drinks only water but the worst is that the last night was very cold, it rained all night.

The strike is against a builder of a new Leicester Animal Lab: Willmott Dixon

"ACTIVIST BEGINS HUNGER STRIKE PROTEST

An activist has today begun a hunger strike outside the office of Willmott Dixon in Coleshill in protest at the involvement in the construction of a new animal lab at the University of Leicester.

A local campaigner commented "Midlands Animal Rights activists want to mount the pressure on the company, and a 3 - 5 days hunger strike will start as of Monday 7th June 2010 at 12 noon outside of their site. We are hoping to publicise this in the local press as much as possible in order to expose Willmott Dixon to the public and thus further the pressure on them to pull out of their contract in helping to build the new vivisection laboratory for Leicester University."

Please lend your support by attending, or contacting Willmott Dixon in disgust at their involvement in the new lab:

Contact Willmott Dixon on the details below to ask them to stop building the new lab - sample letter below

 

To Whom It May Concern,

    I write to you to express my concern about the role Willmott Dixon are playing in the construction of Leicester University's new animal laboratory. If Willmott Dixon continue in their role as main Contractor on the project then they will be responsible for the deaths of thousands of animals in the future.
    It is known that Wllmott Dixon management have sent an internal email in which they state the new lab will only be using rodents, this is a blatant lie as Leicester staff have confirmed to protesters that mice, rats, guinea pigs and rabbits will be used initially and then there are plans to use dogs in the future. Willmott Dixon cannot know what the building will be used for in the future and should not risk having anything on their conscience, the only way to do this is to stop your contract with Leicester University immediately.
    The scientific community has expressed large concerns about the reliability of drugs tested on animals as the genetic make up between species is so hugely different and in one study 80% of GP's expressed concerns about the reliability of animal testing, these are the people who will witness the side effects and are in one of the best positions to judge.
    Please Do all you can to get your company to pull out of construction at Leicester University.

Regards,

For years now, the UW-Madison has tried to portray a cadre of local folks who complain about its animal experiments as wackos. Inspectors who pulled a surprise visit to UW's research labs discovered at least 20 oversight violations.

As we enter the final critical weeks for the revision of EU Directive 86/609 on the use of animals in experiments your emails are needed urgently !! BUAV findings show the total inadequacy of the proposals that are currently on the table.

CALLING ALL ACTIVISTS!

Hi,

We, the National Animal Rights Association (N.A.R.A. - http://www.naracampaigns.org ) will be having protests outside both Charles River Laboratories in Co. Mayo, on Tuesday 24th November. We want to make them the biggest protests the vivisection industry in Ireland has ever seen - but we need your help!

Our first protest will be outside the Charles River Lab. in Carrentrila, Ballina, Co. Mayo. After a few hours there, we'll be heading to the second Charles River Lab., in Glenamoy, Co. Mayo - which is about an hour's drive from Ballina.

Vegan snacks will be provided throughout the day, and please feel free to bring your own megaphones, posters and banners! We are calling on everyone to make this day a success, so we would like to invite not only activists in Ireland, but campaigners from around the world to attend!



Here's the plan for the day:

MEET AT: 8am sharp, Tues. 24th November, outside the Hugh Lane Art Gallery (Parnell Square, Dublin 1) for pick-up.


8.30am, bus packed and passengers onboard, departing Dublin

11.30am/12noon, estimated arrival at Charles River Laboratory in Carrentrila, Ballina, Co. Mayo.

2.30pm, departing Carrentrila, Ballina, Co. Mayo

3.30pm/4pm, estimated arrival at Charles River Laboratory in Glenamoy, Co. Mayo (it's beside the second Corrib Gas terminal)

6pm/6.30pm, departing Glenamoy

9.30pm/10pm, estimated arrival in Dublin, to be dropped off at Hugh Lane Art Gallery on Parnell Square, Dublin 1.



***CHARLES RIVER - THE FACTS:***

Charles River Laboratories, which is one of the biggest animal testing companies in the world, has two research facilities in Ireland. They are located in: Carrentrila, Ballina, Co. Mayo and Glenamoy, Co. Mayo.

They conduct painful, live experiments on animals for the Pharmaceutical, Animal Health, Medical Device, Biotechnology and Food Industries in this country.

They are a contract testing business, which means they will test anything, on any animal, for a price. Thousands of animals are experimented on in these labs every year.

Their torturous lives are full of pain, fear, suffering and misery. Any animal that manages to survive an experiment, is killed shortly afterwards.

Animals are bred on site, both for their own use and to sell to universities and other commercial laboratories, and we have been informed by sympathisers that the species used include mice, rats, dogs, cats and horses. Over the years we have also received claims of animal bodies and toxic waste being dumped in the nearby lake, as well as reports of dogs being heard barking and howling for hours on end in breeding sheds.

How could anyone do that to an animal? These people are barbaric animal abusers, and are an absolute disgrace to humanity. Hidden behind closed doors, they have gotten away with this for far to long. But we will not stop until we expose this disgusting industry, and finally put a stop to it.

Animals are sentient beings who deserve the freedom to live a full life in their natural environment. There is absolutely no moral or ethical justification whatsoever for using any animal in this way.

***


The animals need you - please be there!


For the animals,

It is vital that the influence of pro-vivisection industry lobbyists is countered by voices that speak out in defence of animals and for modern, cruelty-free research methods. Emails needed ASAP!!
