Britain’s shameful secret…
Animals in labs need you now more than ever. 4 million experiments take place each year. Every day of every week. Our Campus without Cruelty campaign revealed that half take place on university campuses. These animals need help, and World Week for Animals in Labs (24th to 30th April 2017) is the one week of the year dedicated to them. For them. Please don’t turn away.
Being a lab animal means you are generally forgotten by society. One reason for this is the secrecy surrounding this billion-dollar industry. Help us raise awareness on the need to repeal the ‘Secrecy Clause’ and take part in World Week for Animals in Laboratories. Here’s how:
1. Order our new door droppers! Let people know in your local area that lab animals shouldn’t be forgotten.
2. Organise a local info stand!
If you are part of an existing animal rights group, and would like to organise an info stand focusing on animals in labs during World Week for Animals in Labs, we can provide you with the materials you need to make it a success! To order your materials, email email@example.com.
3. Contact your MP!
Write to your MP and ask them to contact the Home Office on your behalf to urge for a repeal of Section 24 of the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986
