  • April 22, 2017On Thursday 20 April 2017, campaigners from the organisation, Animal Justice Project [1], lit up a bridge in Bristol in a spectacular protest – the first of its kind in the United Kingdom – against animal research at Bristol University. The event was part of a global day of action, ‘International Britches Day’. Britches was a macaque monkey who was rescued from a US laboratory in 1985, and who has become synonymous with efforts to end animal experiments.

  • Scores of campaigners and students will come together on Friday 2 December to protest the use of animals in experiments at one of the UK’s leading universities - University College London (UCL). The university - ranked to be 7th in the world [1] - is the third largest user of animals in the UK and used over 202,000 animals there last year alone [2] At the launch of its Campus without Cruelty campaign in the capital city, Animal Justice Project [3] has uncovered what it calls ‘scientifically-flawed, cruel and futile’ experiments carried out at London universities.

  • At noon on Friday 23rd of September 2016, outside Cardiff University main gates on Park Place, scores of protesters will hold a silent protest in remembrance of the 52,564 animals experimented on at Cardiff University last year, equivalent to #SixEveryHour.
